There used to be quite a few avid enthusiasts who built and maintained these types of custom-built sidecars, but nowadays you don’t see so many of them. So today, out of respect for this vintage mode of transportation we are looking at some of the most creative sidecars ever made…
Top 10 Creative and Unusual Motorcycle Sidecars
10 – Mighty Morphin Sidecar Rangers
Actually made by and for Saban Entertainment is this classic Power Range sidecar. With drill missiles on the front as well as a range of weaponry on the cycle.
9 – Dodgems Sidems
The funfair would have been a whole lot more dangerous if the dodgems had motorcycles attached! But it would have been a lot more fun as well.
8 – Side Camping
Custom-built by the very talented Jay Dyer is this sidecar made to look like a classic Volkswagen Camper! It’s no wonder he is constantly stopped for photo opportunities.
7 – Sidecar Fizz
Being more of a Pepsi fan I would not be seen driving around town in this, but I would like to drive around in it on a hot summers day handing bottles of cola out to everyone!
6 – Side Robin
Back in the days of the real Batman (AKA: Adam West), the shows budget was not exactly…big. So this really was the Bat-Bike with a Sidecar for Robin! Retro TV coolness.
5 – Side Drums
You know what it’s like, you are sat in the sidecar with no music to play. Well not with this sidecar because you can bang out your own tunes in time with the road ahead!
4 – Sidecar Attack
Only in Australia could this be real. Featuring a custom-made hammerhead shark sidecar it eats up the traffic like an 80’s jaws film.
3 – Sports Side Car
Never before has the “car” in sidecar been so literal! This eye twisting design by French motorcyclist Francois Knorreck took over 10 years to make! But I think it was worth it.
2 – Bomber Rider
During the war things were tough and people had to learn to fight the enemy with whatever they could like this vintage flight machine. No really, but it looks amazing!
1 – Dead Side
I would like to think that every sidecar enthusiast gets to go out in style with this, but I am sure most of them will just make their own before they go anyway!
