Louis Christen hat den Gespannsport revolutioniert.
Ein Klick ist für jeden Sidecar-Freund ein muss (wahrscheinlich ist jeder schon auf seiner Seite gewesen, trotzdem noch einmal ein Link)-
Louis Christen built and drove his first racing car in 1971 ( Formula Vee 1300 cc ).
From 1971 to 1985 thirtyfife racing cars have been produced ( Formula Vee 1300/1600 cc, Formula Ford 1600/2000 cc, Formula 3 ). These cars won several national championships and many international races.
In 1976 the first LCR sidecar was designed.
In 1978 the Swiss sidecar team Holzer- Meierhans won the first Grand Prix with an LCR at Spa.
The most successfull drivers ever, Rolf Biland ( who raced LCR from 1979 until his retirement in 1997) and Steve Webster ( using LCR since 1983) won more than 100 World Championship and World Cup races.
LCR sidecars have won 12 World Championships and 6 World Cups with the following teams: Holzer-Meierhans, Biland-Waltisperg, Streuer- Snyders, Webster-Hewitt/Simmons/James/ Woodhad, Michel-Birchal.
We are proud to say that for the last 25 years nearly every new idea and design for sidecars has been developed and introduced by LCR.
From 1983 to 1989 we produced a series of very successful monocoque frames for the 80 cc and 125 cc Grand-Prix solo classes. Zündapp worksteam and later Krauser were using our 80 cc frames and driver Stefan Dörflinger twice won the World Championship. There were several Grand Prix wins in the 125 class with MBA- engines.
Since 1986 in co-operation with Krauser we produce the DOMANI road sidecar. Around the world we now have more than 100 confident users of this absolutely unique and exciting sidecar.
Monocoque chassis from aircraft aluminium glued and riveted.
Suspension from light alloy chrome molybdenum steel.
Platform for passenger is a carbon/ aluminium honeycomb sandwich.
Fairing from carbon-kevlar for more safety.
LCR-design floating brake disc, front and rear ventilated.
AP brake calipers, front and rear 4 piston, differential bore.
LCR-design steering system.
LCR-BBS special wheels, front 8.5 x 13",
side 11 x 13", rear 11 x 14".
Koni shock absorbers.
Engine cradles for several engines.
Water and oil radiators for 4 stroke engines.
A perfect team-work with many successful teams has given us all the feedback which is essential to understand how such a non-symmetrical tree wheeler works. Only with the original LCR do you have the benefit of thousands of hours of race experience.
Today we use CAD design-systems and CNC machining to produce the best possible quality.
For newer sidecars all spare parts are in stock . We are able to supply parts for bikes dating back to 1985 in a very short time.
