This project continues to be amazing. A constant thought is that if one guy can be so creative, why do some sidecar manufacturers never consider changing decades old designs ?
Plus, please let's keep this thread concentrating on the build, and avoid too many diversions. Once again, great work Zipper.

Looks a little like a soapbox racer

Or a 40's to 50's Indy car ? http://www.racingnation.com/story.asp?aid=1785

Either way I like that look .

Your only about 4 body mounts away from a test if you like ! If you can get the BMW blue it's going to be very sharp, and I personally think the sloping front is way ahead of the Ural shape.It would not surprise me that with a smallish windshield it would be more economical than allot of us.DB

More suggestions : LED stop light and turn signal, in rear of body unless it would interfere with bumper plan, you got allot of work yet but rack on trunk deck and fender ? Form up an alu box and mount it low left rear of car on those flat sides for the battery and fuse box, if it's gonna be cool make it really cool.DB

Search fleabay for 4-5 gallon fuel cell, lots of interesting shapes lend themselves to those flat sides but you'd need a transfer pump but what the hell.DB

Just found this thread tonight. I'll be hanging out and watching this from now on. Very nice work Zippy! I have learned some things from your build that I can use for my future projects . Right now I am working on a frame to hang a pair of pelican style cases on my bike. Each time I weld I get a bit better at it.

I like the style on the tub. Interesting shape.

Its a good price even with shipping, especially if your bike is a non abs model.DB
