Duna Sidecars from Hungary
« on: July 20, 2009, 01:12:36 PM »
It's taken me some time to work up the courage to bring up this up;
The Duna is a Hungarian sidecar often attached to a 350cc bike called Pannonia.  Very light.  Sort of a '57 Chevy of sidecars with faux jet plane nose.

Seems like they would fit a Bullet quite well.  
Any Europeans here who might have an idea of how to see if they're still made- or could be reprocuced?  I think it would be great if CMW offered them, also.

That's it.  I wouild love to see them offered here, but I don't know if they're still made or not.  CMW offers tanks from England, so why not sidecars from Hingary?

Here's one on an SR500.   I think they're aluminium, so they can't weigh much.  It sure doesn't look an slower than a RE with a Cozy hanging off the side.   (But yeah- not for freeway use.   It LOOKS pretty sporty though!)

I was looking around for a new marker light fixture for my sidecar (mounted on a Moto Guzzi Breva) and when I googled "Duna" I found this thread. It's good to see my rig get around.

The Duna, as noted, was designed for a small bike although that old 2=4 two stroke adage may have something to do with Panonias plan. The Breva delivers about 45 hp from 750 cc's and it feels like the hack with a passenger definitely maxes the bike out.

I think the hack weighs about 125 to 150 lbs..

I have ridden a solo C5 and it felt about like the Breva/Duna rig as far as gittup-n-go.

I have always liked the Unit Sidecar Sprite Model Sidecar (http://www.hedinghamsidecars.com/Hedingham-Sprite.php). It is light and intended for classic British style bikes.

Anyone ever seen one of these?

That is cool.  It really does look like a jet engine.
