    There's a Toro engineer in the Mpls area that built one but only a rear wheel drive with a Yanmar diesel on it pump and motor, I'm surprised someone hasn't driven a sidecar wheel with a hydraulic motor.DB

    The builder had it at the Barber Vintage Festival swapmeet in '08 and I had a chance to talk to him. He said if he did it over he would chage the cruiser style seating position and do it more dirt bike like. For control.
    He told me enough about valveing the hydrolics to make my head spin. I have no dopubt the guy could rig up a sidecar on the bike and have power on that wheel as well.

    Someone has. I saw it at Griffith Park Rally a couple years ago. He had a gas powered Motorcycle with the hydrolic pump on the sidecar,
