I don't have any experience with the company, I think there isn't a standart conversionkit.
The frame has to be elonguated bij aprox 20cm. You have to cut some pieces and weld in other pieces to get it right.
The adaptor for the gearbox on the engine is a machined piece . This is not so easy to make and i think they don't sell it. They sell complete built dieselmotorcycles with sidecar, that's the way they make money.
The engine they used is an 2cyl, 1000 cc, Hatz aircooled diesel (100 kg) (aprox 23HP max 3600 rpm) . For a bike with sidecar somewhat underpowered.

I actually know Lois Löw personally. It might be advisable to get someone who can speak German and call him for you. AFAIK he doesn't offer a conversion kit, but only the complete sidecar. The 23 horsepower are quite a lot as the engine is very torquey and it's definitely not a lot slower than a stock Ural 650 or Dnepr 650.

Cheers,
Greg
