THE MOST CAFÉ RACER EVAR

Skkot, you have competition...

The machine is fed by a 26-gallon water tank, via a purification system, and once in place, was fettled by the techs from Black Rabbit Service Co. to ensure peak performance.

There’s also a hand sink, a pitcher cleaner, a built-in cooler, a coffee grinder, plenty of storage, and a 220v/110v electrical panel.

The espresso machine weighs more than 50 kg (112 lbs), and 26 gallons of water weighs almost double that. So the sidecar required bracing, and there’s a discreet airbag suspension system to stop the precious cargo from being rattled around too much....
No need for a Monkey, anyway... :shock:

So, how hard would it be to have a pony keg setup with two taps?

That is an absolutely stupid and absurd waste of a good bike. I want one.

Urals are supposed to be run in the cold. Based on my impression, their presence may actually drop temperatures. Nobody fucks with a mad Russian, not even the sun.
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

It's too bad the more reliable of the the two motors is on one wheel.

Now, if he converts the 3rd wheel drive-shaft to operate as a clutch-in bean grinder: respect.

Just dump 'em right into the rear diff! But then again, you might get more metal shavings than ground coffee when you empty it.

Is it wrong that I kind of dig that sidecar? Not that I would get one, but it just looks so cozy
