Gathering supplies

Here are a few of the items to build a sidecar. The square tubing is from yamaha 4 wheeler shipping crates. They usaly just sell this stuff for scrap metal. If you have a yamaha dealer around that sells 4 wheelers see if you can grab some of this stuff. Arc welder...buzz box that plugs into where my electric clothes drier plugs in plus some 6013 rod. Half inch drill to drill the mounting holes. Sawsall that cuts anything...metal scultpting tool. Another bike...this project is ratcheting up to a higher level. I found this beautifull old TT500 yamaha that I had to have. So I might have to use the damaged fork lift guard in the back of the truck to make a subframe and mount this setup in a sanitary way. Beer for the contemplation of esoteric addendems such as a sidecar wheel powered 12 volt alternator so I can run sume electric clothes and real lights. Let the welding begin.

Greetings from Seattle Cheap Ryder. Nice to see you are still dabbling in sidehacks. In the winter of 1981-82, Cheap Ryder, then known by a much more common name, loaned me a sidecar frame formerly owned by Evel Knievel. I had a daily commute through the snow and had two motorcycles but not enough money for a car. He took pity on me and mounted it to my CB500. Bolted a wooden army footlocker full of rocks to it for ballast and away I went. I'm now looking for the same setup for my DR650 so I can strap my trials bike to it and get to the sections without spending a small fortune for gas. Let me know if you want to go into production, sounds like a great excuse for a trip to Helena!

Long time no see. Tell us about the ice storm and sliding in the ditch. As a matter of fact I am going to pick up a new MIG welder this week and start on my garage project. All thanks to escalating home prices and a home equity loan. I plan on doing some sidecars so stay tuned. Check out www.KLR650.com for some sidecars on KLR's. Peace love and light.
