I think it might be a manure shield.

That is a "dash board"...to keep the manure and dirt from getting kicked up on the riders in the wagon.

The name is still in use today, but refers to...well, you get the idea.

Hi

Noob alert, so to keep things formal,
I'm new to ADVrider, 23 years old, born in Poland and living in Vienna.
Couldn't believe sidecars were so popular on this site, so joined the party at last.

Here's our (I buy or build and share all my bikes and cars with my father)
Ural hack. Specs are:
Almost fully original 1956 Ural M72 sidecar from Irbit, down to period
correct horn and 1956 meshok
Built for the army, but restored to civilian standard and colour



This is not a show bike and will be used extensively once the
carbs are in tune and tests finished.

I've been lurking and reading ride reports for years (don't argue with Dakez etc.) and enjoyed all the ride reports,
may be tempted to post a few myself, but I'm usually not documenting every detail of the very few tours I make.

I won't list the projects I'm working on right now, I'll just say cheers
and greet every inmate, may it be with or without hack.

She looks rather proud of herself for surviving.

A couple pics...

From our party last weekend. I took the hack to let a brother who flew in ride my long bike. It was a hit as it was the first time anyone there had ridden in one.

My Brother driving me, he had never been on one but picked it up rather quickly, I weren't skeered at all.


A passenger who loved to fly! She wanted me to fly it on every corner.


A friends son went for a spin around the campground, he is still talking about it, I still smile every time I think about it. I had as much fun as he did!

It is good that you are converting the masses to three wheels, comrade.

Not sure, some have likened it to a canonical ride so maybe thats it.
