    The rear end looks similar to a couple of older Indian Cycles. Is there a sidecar attached?

    Please let me translate what's on the cap as per the attached image.

    'Ningbo' comes from Ningbo City in China which is famous for automotive parts makers.
    As you may know, CJ-750 was manufactured being based on Soviet Union's IMZ-M72.
    IMZ-M72 was based on BMW-R71.

    Thanks.
