Hack as a racebike transport???

Anyone have a hack built to transport a bike? I remember seeing photos of racers transporting their machines to races with a sidecar, just can't seem to find any photos. I am interested in doing something like this, any photos or info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and the 'hack' section is a welcome addition to the asylum!

Race transport

Hey Knacker,
I have toyed with that idea for a while too, having never seen a set-up in person. Might just have to take the chair off Pop's sidecar rig and install a piece of channel.

I have hauled solo bikes on a sidecar frame and it works great. Race bikes would do quite well.
I think you may find pictures of bikes being hauled on sidecars by googling 'Pop Dryer' AND/or possibly 'Dual sport Sidecars'. There is a picture of Doug Bingham somewhere on the net actually hauling another sidecar outfit on a sidecar You can contact Doug at and maybe he can lead you to some pics.
Note that all we did for was remove the sidecar body and put a piece of channel aluminum fore and aft on the sidecar frame to run the bike up on. We put the bike on backwards.
Go for will get a lot of double takes from people on the road. Dunno how legal it woudl be to have a passenger on the solo bike during transport. Could be intetreting to see the ones that serve and protect figure out what to write you up for though.
Oh and also be sure to remember that when the solo bike is unloaded you will have a very very light sidecar out there....yee ha!

I have an r80g/s w/ r100 top-nd thAt I would love to set-up for that. Except I'd be hauling a vintage roadracer and the tools to go with it. May have to keep an eye out for a sidecar frame....

Thanks new hack section!

Any other photos of rigs like this would be greatly appreciated.

I've been thinking the same.. just need to find the time to assemble/resorte the sidecar..

here's another option.. towing the racebike.
He told me he sometimes had a racebike on the sidecar chassis, as well as the racebike in tow.

There was a guy here in Adelaide back in the 90's who had a zx10 with a chair and he welded a "U" shaped bar to his sidecar chassis and took the front wheel off his race bike and bolted his forks to the bar where his front axle would normally be and put the front wheel in the sidecar with any spares required for racing and just towed the bike behind the chair.

Not sure if he fixed the steering in one spot while he towed it but it did work.

This way you get to keep the chair for stowing race gear.
