    This came up for sale just down the road from me!
    Tempting to buy. The front end is something different i wonder how this would handle.

    That's what's called an Earls front fork and it is very good for sidecar work. '60's BMWs came with them. There's no front end brake dive with that fork. The front actually lifts a little when braking.

    That's the proper way to have the front end set up for Sidecars, (leading link)...........Ease of handling and cornering and takes the pressure off your shoulders/arms
