Talk about all things Rat Rod Bikes.
In the near future, I'll need a few. Maybe 3-4 of each size. I'll let you know!
I found the inspiration for your build yoothgeye. Nannie McPhee.

I got 2 of each of these:
Was $4 each for the ones on top, and $6 each for the ones on the bottom. I think on the $6 ones she said she could do $5 each if you bought over 4, or was it 4 or more? Anyway, I thought it was a decent price.
For this picture I started a new album in my Photobucket account called "Build-Off 7" I have some other military stuff I've collected up and was going to sell till I decided on this build direction.
Gotta ask, just for clarity....
If a sidecar is legal in the BO, then can I assume a trailer would also be legal?
That is sSOOOOOO 21 pages ago. You need 4G!!
I asked that earlier. Look at the 12th post on page 13 and the answers given after that.
Trailer it is!!!!! (Heck, I don't have a single G! I have no idea what I'd do with four of them!)
Another sidecar question.
Is there any practical reason why most sidecars are mounted on the right side of the a bike/motorcycle?
I am planning on putting mine on the ugly side of the bike so that I can show off the chainring and chainguard and such.
I wondered the same thing, but right side, even though I've never been on a sidecar bike/cycle just "feels" right to me. Then I can hide my ugly chainring and lack of chainguard, even though I did buy a bike just for the chainring.
But since you are copying the Nannie McPhee sidecar, you should be putting it on the left side.
Here is some cool rusty sidecar inspiration. This SOOOOOO fits into what I am thinking!!!! I think I may have found a new wallpaper.

I've wondered why the side car was on the right covering up alot of the character & decor of bikes and why more weren't on the left side. Maybe politics had something to do with it....

That sidecar is awesome! Just remember your tetanus shots.
It doesn't matter what I paid for it, it matters what it's WORTH. I never buy anything I will regret KEEPING.
Probably because it is easier for the motorcycle rider to see around the traffic in front of him, especially when trying to pass.
But that would mean on the island countries that drive on the wrong side of the road, they should be on the other side, but I don't think they are.
I tried being serious, but it was boring.
