The damn thing fell off a trailer last fall while heading to a Rally. Long story!
Anyway, half the floor board and legshield was shaved down while being dragged down the road, so I chopped it up.
Its not done yet, but its close....

Nice.

I like the military-esque color motif. You should have like a pointy thing on the front of the sidecar so it looks like a turret mounted.

That would be a great photo. Bull dog in an army helmet with goggles on, maybe put a cigar in his mouth. But, hes at my brothers now. I got to house train him and then my brother gets to take over!

Two Words, CARB ISSUES !
I guess the carb doesn't need to be working right to take some pics. I just got the fog lights back from the powder coater. After I put them on I will take some pics. I didnt have time to make seat covers yet, go figure, but I might just leave them as is anyway....

I am so jealous of folks with this much talent. The first rendition was gorgeous. This re-modeled version borders on genius. Each time I look at the pictures I see some other detail.
Fabulous job!!!

Thanks, Wish I had more time to work on it. I pretty much just threw it together. I used spray paint since I didnt want to shell out the money for a pro job on something that I use all the time. I think the most money I spent on this thing is the air soft GUN, but ya cant have a military scooter with out a GUN! I even recycled some floor rail rubber and riveted it to the tail end of the side car where the original crappy aluminum strips were!
thanks for editing my post.... Vegetable peeler? give me a friggin break.

Sidecar comes off easily. If I use the scooter for long rides I take the car off. Theres no center stand on the scooter, so I put an engine bolt side stand on it...

The coolest scoot and sidecar I've ever seen in my life.

How about the weird looks about the 50 cal. machine gun mounted to the sidecar?

Thats probably what the cops would want from me if the gun was real! According to NY state law, an Air soft gun is not considered a fire arm Its 99% metal and has all the functions of the real deal except it doesn't shoot bullets. The BBs will leave a pretty nasty welt!
Thanks again for the compliments.
