So the Tug is sold, albeit it’ll be with me a few more weeks so I can do a bit of work to it. I’ll be refitting the stock R80 engine & final drive to it. It’s new owner intends that it will continue life initially as a scrambler, but longer term moving more towards a cafe racer. Given how tidy other of his projects have been I have no doubts it’ll be very nice.

I have a new R80G/S project that will get all the nice bits off ‘Gus’, my current solo bike.

Gus is destined to the the new tug, & will get the R100 engine from the existing tug, KTM USD forks, & a nice 18″ cross spoke wheel from an R1200C.

The sidecar will need new rear mounts.

Stay tuned
