Pocket bike sidecar I am wondering how many of these are in the U.S.?
Thank you for the information and your welcome!!!!!!
First how do I change my Avatar?
Second how do I find more sidecar frames and plastic?
Third how do I post pictures of my sidecar I’m doing a full show build for awards? I’d like some feedback on if I can do better, I don’t think so it already looks like a piece of jewelry.
I might want to find another one to build also?
Thank you again, Robert Atkins.
Welcome again fellow Engineer.....Sir,
I really appreciate your response and help with navigating this site, and the information of the sidecar and the past conversations you’ve had. I’m a retired Aerospace Engineer and I found an 07 crashed and beaten that is exact look of the silver one in the pictures. I, however do one hobby build at a time and I recognized the bad welds and fatigue points as soon as I took it down to the frame. I’m coming up on my 3rd year of rebuilding it from an Engineering standpoint I will try to post some pictures as I have documented it from the start, a pic of my Daughter sitting on it before I dismantled it. I started with a sandblast and grinding all the welds then proceeded to re-weld then sand to 600 grit. I then send it to powder coat gloss black, I have spent the last 3 years researching all the parts, and replacing with quality sleeper parts like a 44mm balanced motor, and except for the plastic I have replaced 95% of the bike. I am repairing the plastic using a resin repair method that is working wonderful, 4 colors, gloss black, fire engine red, gold accents, and chrome bolts. I hope to post pictures now and all the way to the finish by May 1st and I only have the front fairing and third wheel to finish repairing, however I took the chain guard and seat plastic back off to repair and paint better I am going for perfection. I am also going to build a custom stand also powder coated for display, this bike will never be ridden unless I sell it, I intend it to be eye candy and win show awards. I will start it for display on the stand as I also installed a speedometer to show the judges that it is a running working machine. Thank you for your help I might need more help to post pictures and I still haven’t been able to get on classic mode yet. Again I can’t thank you enough and I hope that I can respectfully ask for more of your time for information/advice in the future. Robert Atkins.
