10 years, 10,000 hours and $21,000 went in to converting this 1000cc Laverda 3CL into a custom sidecar. The result looks nothing like the original bike and like nothing else on the road.
Built by François Knorreck, a French medical technician, over the course of a decade, he was inspired to create a sidecar because his old 3CL had right-hand chain drive, perfect for a straight chainline to the rear axle. [Snaefell Project via Motorbiker.org]
