Hello and welcome, my name is Keith and I have created this website to show you how to build your own sidecar from home.
To date I have custom built over 30 sidecars for clients as well as a few for my own use. I specialise in fitting sidecars to BMW GS motorcycles however the chassis / frame / swing-arm combo I will show you how to make can be made to fit any bike. Some examples of sidecars I've built are shown below.
There are many ways to build a sidecar. In designing my rigs my ambition was to build something that was robust, fun to ride and easy and straight forward to produce.
This was to be a sidecar that didnt require expensive parts and machinery to create. I also wanted it to be easily detachable... by simply removing 3 bolts in a few minutes your bike is back to a solo again.
The end result is a sidecar named Smiling Wind which I build from start to finish from my small outdoor workshop on a farm in South Africa.
The step by step process I use to build these sidecars is always the same
Now let me show you how to start your DIY sidecar project today!
I have put together a Sidecar Builder DIY Instruction Kit that will show you precisely, with plans, how to build your own sidecar from home. The kit is available in two versions for sidecars to be fitted either on the right or left of the bike depending upon where in the world you live.
