…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Snaefell?

Snaefell

Motorcycle sidecars are usually just additions to a bike that allow you to bring someone else along for the ride without having them hold on to you and stare at the back of your helmet all day.

Fran├žois Knorreck saw things differently however, as his right-hand chain driven Laverda 3CL inspired a sidecar that turns his ride into something that more closely resembles a car than a motorcycle.

In all, it took him 10 years, more than 10,000 hours, and $21,000 to convert the bike into what you see here (he calls it the Snaefell) but for the two passengers that get to sit in an enclosed capsule of speed, the time, energy and money were most definitely worth it.
