Nice build. You did a great job. It's impressive seeing people fabricate so much on a build.

Ingenious setup on the rear brake hack brake combo!

I don't know how often you might be wanting to remove the sidecar, but one idea I'd had about the car brake is using a quick-connect line fitting on the sidecar line. I don't know how hard it would be to get one, but I thought to use one while working on my brother's Ford Ranger. The hydraulic clutch has a quick-connect fitting in-line so that you can remove/replace the transmission without having to re-bleed the clutch line as the slave cylinder is mounted on the bellhousing.

Thanks for all the compliments guys! As far as the brake situation goes......It's a piece of cake taking the sidecar on and off because the car has its own master cylinder, so there is nothing to disconnect. The brake lever for the car operates when it is pushed by the lever for the rear bike brake. It just rides in a grove. It seems to be working good so far.

Excellent work as usual! Are you going to get some headlights on that sidecar? That would look tits, but then you may have to have that quick disconnect for power...

If you make it out to Ohio, I'll keep my eye out for ya!

Try this link....not sure why the other one didn't work. It's at $1500 right now, but I think it's worth more. It has 3 days left.

How can one person keep topping the work that they do? This just put you on a whole other level of fab skills.

Good job man.. Oh what did you figure out for your rear fender?
