Homemade sidecar bodies
 
I am building a sidecar for my xs400/xt350 bike and I need ideas for construction of the tub. I have done extensive searching but can really only find info on frame construction and utility carts. I need some pictures/inspiration for small homemade passenger car bodies. Any info would be great, thanks!

Edit: Durr, I misread and thought you were looking to build a utility cart. D:

Millennium, I built my sidecar body of 3/16 birch plywood. I don't know the technique of posting on a forum but I can e-mail some pix if you're interested.

if you are handly with wood and have patience google 'cedar strip canoe'. This technique has been applied to make some very nice looking sidecar bodies. Use your imagination! I am sorry that I can't locate pictures. Or click here: http://www.pdxtex.com/canoe/canoe.htm

I'd like to put a giant funnel in my mouth and pop the tab on that bottom one.....

Look up wood stitch, stich and glue, wood strip, canoe and kayak.

I saw this at Intermot in Cologne, if you're into kayaking this might work for you.

Hey Millennium Falcon, did you start your project? :ear

MILLENNIUM FALCON 12-05-2012 09:07 AM

Hey guys.....my project has been o. Hold for awhile. I have finals this week then I'm going to start working on it again. I have the frame done but the body and design are still up in the air. :(

I don't know if the pics will help or not but mine converts from a passenger body to a camping box.
