No laughing at my rigs....

Thought I would introduce myself. Longtime hack rider and bulder of sidecars purely for my own enjoyment. The first one is a all alluminum riig I built for my Triumph Rocket. The second one is one I am building now that uses a 3800 Oldsmobile V6 mounted in the trunk of the sidecar.Powers both the sidecar wheel and the bike wheel.Some of asked for additional pictures.Here they are I have also included some of my other projects.Thanks for the interest!

I loved the first one when I saw it quite a while back, and I dam sure like how the body is turning out compared to what it started out looking with half a frame.

Wonder if this is the same rig, except the colors that I spied in a Newfoundland campground during my 2008 solo TLH venture?

Really cool...

Welcome to the asylum.

May need to buy myself some binoculars ... I think you just raised the bar .

Looking forward to more posts from you. The engineering in your latest one looks intriguing with the staggered driveline.

Have fun.

Have seen pictures of the first one but never had the pleasure to see It in person. Hats off to your metal working skills my friend.

I don't follow instructions.

Oh, okay, I generally do. I just wanted to be the first to laugh at your sidecars. I think if I continue, I will be lonely.
