    rebuild motorcycle

    So I have a crazy idea and wondering if anyone can help me....I wreck my motorcycle 20 years ago this August. I want to turn it into a trike and wondering if I can find a TV show that would want to do this for me....anyone have any ideas who I could contact??

    I'd think one of the Jessie James shows would be a start

    These guys rebuilt a bike for a para: http://www.history.com/shows/counting-cars since they did it once they may not do it again but you never know.

    I saw that, they built it so the guy drove into the sidecar and operated the motorcycle from the sidecar, pretty cool.

    Why go with a trike, I used this system for a few years and had a lot of fun.

    It's for sale (the bike isn't included).

    You could easily build a sidecar that is a cargo box. You could put your chair in it.



    It doesn't have to be that big or ugly, but you get the point. Here is another:

    Keep your eye out for an old "TomCo" sidecar, I found mine in St. Louis using a nationwide Craiglist search:

    "a T10, who'd Rather be ridin'; than rollin'"

    Try Chip Foose he rebuilds automobiles.

    He has done a hot rod for a guy in a 'chair.

    Ask him? The worse thing he can say is, "no."

    It was a pretty amazing bit of engineering considering the guy probably weighed 350 pounds easy. The guy they had on the bike during the test run looked a little wigged out though, not sure how stable it was
