Sidecar Bicycle by Wilkinson Brothers

Casey’s son said he wanted a sidecar of his own like our Ural Red October. So, they built a sidecar bicycle using old bikes, spare parts, and sheet metal. Check out Casey’s pics and words on how this father-son project came to life!

Cut-up bicycle frames and scrap tubing were used to form the chassis of the sidecar. We used 3/8-inch round-bar for the tub’s wireframe and cut sheet metal panels to mimic the look of a Ural Motorcycles sidecar. Here are the photos of the build process…

After welding everything up, a quick paintjob and decal application completed the build (it even has a functional trunk). If you’ve seen our red sidecar, you’ll know this is an homage to one of the Wilkinson Bros company sidecars.
