Re: Sidecar seat plans

Good tips Bin! Thanks! I never built boats, but did build model airplanes. This is just tree fort levels of carpentry here. I always used Gorilla Glue and then popped a few wire brads in to hold the pieces steady so I could drill pilot holes and then run the screws in. Then I did the solvent based p...

Re: Finally an owner or who’s crap did I just buy

I doubt that is a factory weld. Usually the factory welds I have seen my not be perfectly neat, but they ARE done hot enough to fuse the metal and be structurally safe. That weld looks like it was done by the new owner of a cheap MIG welder and done at too low an amperage to even make a puddle. They...

Re: Sidecar seat plans

Materials recommendations: 1/2 to 5'8" CDX outdoor plywood for the main pieces. Sand a radius on all the edges so they don't chew thru the cover later. Use treated wood for the bottoms cross piece and gusset. I always used screws and glue to put the cross piece and gusset on. Treated deck screws are...

They actually are now, my M70s trunk stays bone dry in daily use, sitting outside all day in our fine Seattle weather.
I had no idea. Glad to hear that!

Sidecar seat plans

Folks. I am now declaring this open source. This is the diagram I used for 20 years to scratch build my own sidecar seats for customers. It has all pertinent dimensions. Flat iron stock to make the seat hardware. Make your own and have fun!

Re: Sidecar for sale

Fresh pics. Please ask any questions and I'll be happy to answer. The trailer hitch has it's own support strut even though it is welded on. I made it sturdy!

Re: Are CJ and Dnepr sidecar seats the same size as Ural's?

Dnepr and CJ seats are very different from what fits in a Ural sidecar. They do not interchange! And now the newest Ural seats with their plastic bottom are very different from the older ones. JMO, but I think it was a mistake to change that. The older seat shapes and hardware was easy to recreate a...
