Sidecar Bicycle Build Project

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.

Casey’s son and daughter have mastered the “flying the chair” technique on their custom sidecar bicycle.

We’re motorcycle fanatics for sure, but we’re family guys first and are always finding ways to show our kids how to have fun.
