Let me start by saying that I know nothing about the Chang Jiang
but if you click the link, I think I crossed paths with a CJ750 M1M with sidecar. It is not a copy but rather a reproduction of a pre WWII BMW R71
This Hack appears to be a daily driver as it is sporting Commercial Licence plates and he was picking up some items from our warehouse. With his approval I snapped a series of photos but I am only posting a few here. They may be of interest to Charlie6 and he may ask to view more of them.
I have seen a few Chang Jiang's before, a beautiful black one was for sale at the Yamaha dealer and it appeared to look exactly like a Beemer.
In the photo above, the black pegs are for changing from Forward to Reverse. The silver lever below is for changing gears, with the toe/heal shifter
There is the driveshaft for the single wheel drive (OWD:One Wheel Drive)
Here is another view of the drive shaft, but notice the suicide shifter coming out of the case. You can shift gears with this lever, as well as the toe/heal shifter on the left side. I was told that this lever was easier to access when you are physically pushing the rig around and need to shift it out of gear
I know that Dom/Charlie6 likes to see how the sidecar is attached, so I always take this perspective for him
It has a very primitive "dash", a couple of indicator lights, a speedometer, and that's it, except for the steering damper butterfly knob
A view of the right side
and a view of the handlebar and brake lever. I'm not sure how many people have ever seen a Chang Jiang in action, but a little too utilitarian for me
