Royal Enfield diesel and trailer a nice combo

The Royal Enfield diesel motorcycle shown on this blog recently must have struck Helmut Forsbach as a bit of a coincidence. He emailed me these pictures of his own 1999 diesel-powered Royal Enfield.

Helmut even has a PAV 40 single-wheeled trailer, like the Sommer motorcycle Dirk, from Germany, showed us, below.

Helmut is in Germany, too, but his motorcycle is the original Taurus diesel powered model from India, which featured a 325cc Greaves motor. Seven horsepower!

Helmut is pictured next to his motorcycle. At "68 years old (young)," he looks like a serious traveler. That cute little trailer must come in handy!

The PAV trailers were made in Czechoslovakia during the 1960s and '70s for Jawa motorcycles. Here in the U.S. we can get the Inder trailers, inspired by the PAV but made in India. They are available from Classic Motorworks.
