These two H-D 's are following along with the Cannonball Coast to Coast Run as recue angels.








This BMW is going to Califoria also and is carrying the Discovery Channel cameraman.







I spoke with the builder/ driver, he said everyone asks about the fender on the hack. He made it from a fiberglass shower surround he pulled from an old motorhome ! Nice work!

That builder is Gary Haynes, owner of Sidecar Magic Shop in WV. Great guy. Here is the other body that goes on that frame:

Thanks Sarge, I talked with Gary for a bit and asked if he had a bussiness card on him, but he was out. I usually forget peoples names on the first meeting , so I didn't ask.

awhile back I saw this in front of my hotel in Brazil, and snapped a pic of this wonderful example of sidecar utility - these little Honda 150's tear all over town delivering our favorite refreshments, and picking up the empties:


then last month I saw two of them carrying the fixings for a complete party - beer, big metal cooler, even furniture:


I wish I had a shot from my first glimpse of them going down the street with the tables stacked 8' in the air - really got my attention!

+ + x =

Finally have finished installing all the parts and pieces. Had to do some minor modifications to fit the Heinrich tank. Scrounged up a beefier shock for the sidehack. Took me 2 years to get things to this point. Have run it a couple thousand (very) loaded miles. Looking forward to some winter riding in the southwest.



Had one floor board mounted on the left, but couldn't mount the right due to the subframe. Finally decided to mount it from the sidecar frame....excuse the dead grass hoppers. I killed about 10000 of them last weekend on a ride. When I started the bike today it smelled like someone was burning meat.


Still need to line interior of the sidecar body. Think I'll get some gray automotive trunk carpeting and use that.




This thing was built to ride. It will never be anything near "show quality" and wasn't intended to be. Even though the majority of parts were scrounged, it has still been a money pit as a lot of new parts were required.
I have a lot of satisfaction to look at the thing and know I raised it from the dead....
In reality I guess this thing will never be completely done. Seems there are always improvements to be made.
