Hello all. I’ve been busy working on a dual sport sidecar build. Although it is not what we refer to as a High Performance sidecar, it is a (somewhat) high performance dirt road outfit. Attached are a few pictures of the finished project. If you are interested in seeing more pictures and a build report check it out on advrider.com in the "Hacks" section and look for “Yamaha FZ1 dual sport sidecar build”. I hope to see you all in Maggie Valley – on the Hayabusa, unless you all plan to put knobby tires on your rigs Very Happy

Yep, that's a winch. My wheelchair doesn't work very well as a tow truck and the little folding shovel my friend gave me is way to much like work.

Looks really sweet, Doug, except it looks way too clean for what it is. Where's the mud Question Question
Or are these just the "before" pictures?

Great job Doug. I can only spot one thing out of character for a perfectionist like yourself, and that is the picture hanging on the wall seems a little crooked. [/img] Big Grin See you in MV.

Really neat job, Doug. Looks like a lot of fun! Smile

If I need anything sandblasted, I will send it down to you, and you can hang it off the rear! On second thought, there probably won't be anything left when you got done. Big Grin
