    sidecar plans

    I am interested in building a sidecar from the ground up to use primarily for hauling 4-5 Boston Terriers and perhaps the occasional grandkid locally. I am thinking a two seat model would be versatile for both canines and humans.

    I have a welder, basic metal & woodworking tools/skills and a paint gun. Any thoughts on sources for plans including tub construction?

    I would also consider modding an existing unit.

    Thanks
    Kim

    If you google "How to build a sidecar" there is good stuff. I imagine you'll get some great input here as well. Take many photos and post your progress please.

    Not sure how much experience you have with sidecars but you may be able to find a used hack, already built, color matched and dialed in with lot's of good stuff for significantly less money than building one from scratch. There are some good threads and sources of sidecar info on the adventure riders forum under hacks. Wish you well on which ever tack you take. Ride easy,
