WWII reenactment sidecar

This is one of many WWII re-enactment bikes we've built over the years.

 

What makes this bike unique is the camouflage paint.

 

It was copied off a German WWII R75 bike. Most re-enactment bikes we've seen are using the wrong pattern and color camouflage.

 

The bike has a vintage rear tail light and a copy of the MG34 machine gun mount.

 

And it is powered by a BMW airhead motor 900cc R90/6 so it can really haul.

Bobber with a springer fork

This is the second Bobber we've built.

 

The frame is a Chang Jiang, and we added a DNA Springer to it. Unlike our first Bobber this bike has a rebuilt 750cc flathead motor.

 

The tank is a custom made polished aluminum.

We fabricated a custom exhaust exiting on the right side. The frame is powder coated black along with the Springer.

 

We also fabricated a polished aluminum rear fender to match the polished aluminum gas tank. We added a tank mounted shifter as well.

 

The wheels are currently standard Chang Jiang 19" wheels powder coated black. But we also have fat 16" (Harley) wheels that went with the bike.

Leather Saddlebags

Our genuine cowhide leather saddle bags are made by hand by our supplier, a husband and wife team. The purchase the leather, they dye it themselves, the hand cut it, and they even hand stitch it themselves. Truly old world craftsmanship.

 

New H-D Panhead seats

Our seats are but by hand from the pan up. The Pan is modeled after the Harley Panhead, so it fits those models as well.

 

The leather is 2 mm thick, and hand dyed. It is then hand cut, and hand stitched.

 

Hand tooled leather is also available.

 

These seats will fit on the H-D Panhead, the BMW /2 (with the T-Bar as well), the Chang Jiang, and the Ural.

Yes, believe it or not this IS a Chang Jiang 750.

The frame is stock, with the stock plunger rear suspension, now exposed.

 

The front end is a Springer.

The fat wheels and tires are also borrowed from the classic American Cruiser.

 

We bobbed the rear fender and fabricated a custom stainless steel exhaust.

The seat is also a custom piece from chrome with leather inserts.

 

Powering this bike is a BMW R75/5 motor coupled to a 4 speed transmission.

As good as it looks, it rides even better.

Lightweight, nimble, but with plenty of scoot.

American know-how, German BMW engineering

In the blue sweatshirt with the welding mask: Jim Bryant! Yup, it's me. Born and raised in the glorious state of New Hampshire, United States, I used to be a race car driver. My gig was IndyCars, and for many years I sweated over big engines, hot asphalt, and racy girls.

 

My pro career then moved to China where I introduced several large US companies like Pizza Factory and Subway. This is when I met the love of my life, and decided to make Beijing my permanent home.

 

I got involved with ChangJiang motorcycles back in the mid-1990s, when my wife had the good taste to offer me a vintage sidecar to remind me of my good ole days.

 

I was hooked, and the bug never left me. Over the years, I have restored and built more CJ 750 sidecars than I can shake a dipstick at. On the last count,we have delivered over 120 BMW powered Chang Jiang conversions.

 

God blessed me, I love my job!
