Kerncountykid hack?

Check out Trevor's story over in Inmates; short version is that he is an inmate that was struck by a drunk driver back in Sept 2012, confined to a wheelchair with traumatic brain injuries. We have recently taken him for some rides in a borrowed Ural sidecar, he had a great time:



Trevor has numerous older Honda project bikes, the best being an older CB650:



What would it take to make this bike sidecar compatible, and where would be the best place to find such a rig?

I build all my own rigs BUT if I were going to have one built I would go see Claude..CSM.I live right by DMC so they would be my second choice.

The CB650 with a Texas sidecar could make a pretty well balanced rig. The cars are simple, but generally sturdy -- but more difficult passenger entry/exit than a Ural type sidecar.

The ride reports by Kern County Kid were remarkable. Amazing, crazy, alternative and moving. I could hardly believe it when I heard about him getting creamed. A terrible shame.

Good on ya for taking him out on the road!

It was an epic ride; should have posted it here, as a Good Samaritan with a sweet Ural sidecar was instrumental in making it happen... Words cannot describe how cool it was.



This is what has me thinking of rigging up one of Trevor's personal bikes with a hack so he can relive this moment often.

Thanks for posting this. It's great to see him out of the hospital. His ride report was one of my all time favorites and helped get me out of my comfort zone. Best wishes to you Trevor,
Tom

I know of a "custom built" sidehack wheel chair rig that has been sitting for a while.
The rig is controlled from the sidecar / wheelchair. I have never seen the rig but a buddy who looked at it described it to me last year.... he doesn't know much about motorcycles.
Unfortunately it has been sitting out in the weather for a number of years and is an older Moto Guzzi....if it has the "chrome bore" cylinders, the engine is likely "toast".
I hope to be passing through the area where the rig is located in the next couple of months....I'll see if I can get a "peek" at it...

Update:
I've made some efforts today to get a hold of the guy who has the bike / "wheel hack". I hope to be in contact with him in the next few days. I know he is adamant that the machine goes to someone to use for its' intended purpose.....transporting a wheel chair'd rider.... I just don't know what condition the rig is in.
I'll update when I find out more.

Finally got a couple photos of the sidehack rig. The bike is a Moto Guzzi 1000 "Convertable" with the 2 speed automatic transmission. The guy who built it spent a lot of time on the project and named it the "Land Shark".. He would run it in low range all the time. The rear access ramp is on a hydraulic cylinder. The bike was running a while back and has been stored inside most of the time. No reverse and would need quite a bit of work to get back on the road.
Unfortunately the guy thinks the bike is worth a lot more than it really is.
