Terry Kofoed’s Cute Sidekick

Dan,
Here is my sidekick I completed in March of this year. I know you must be getting several requests from Rigby, Idaho because every time we drive it we get requests. I could have sold a dozen of these!
I have enjoyed this very much. We find ourselves running errands all over town instead of taking the car.
Notice the Chrysler hood ornament and our custom license plate. That’s my daughter, who loves to ride with me also. Thanks for the great design, Terry Kofoed
Thanks Terry for the good word. Your attractive daughter and that sporty red bike, I have no doubt will draw attention. Very cool. Regards Dan

I just thought you might like to see the bike cars we worked on this year in our Engineering and Design class here in Fremont Michigan, They have gone over quite well with a lot of positive comments from Staff and Administration, Thanks for all your help…
I must say I am very impressed with what this class did with the Baja, absolutely stunning guys. Dan

Hey Dan,
I had originally trained him with a 20 speed bike and he did great but I wanted him to pull a sled. Well, since we have no snow here I figured I would buy a “road sled” a four wheeled bike. After I had said that, my wife searched the internet and found your site, and low and behold I had plans for my “road sled”………lol. I will try to send you some pictures with him hooked up to the bike. I went through quite a few configurations on how to hook him to the Baja and came up with the gangline attached at the top left corner ( we ride on the left side of the road. I originally hooked the gang line up low and center, but whenever he slowed down the gangline would go under the tires, now if he slows down the gangline goes left and high away from the tires.
I really enjoyed building this bike from you plans and your customer service is fantastic.
Regards,
Dale

Jerry Pauley’s Sidekick and Custom Carrier

Jerry Pauley wrote:
I like the look of wood so I added bumpers, dash, fenders, chain guard and luggage rack made of wood.
My daughter gave me the idea for the PVC cup holders and I designed the headlights.
We have only been able to take it on a couple of short test rides. I will make the final adjustments in Florida next month.
I was not able to paint it because it is too cold here in WV. I plan on painting it when we get back in April.
I also designed and built a carrier for the back of my Tracker that I tow behind our motor home so that we can take the “Quad Cycle” camping with us.

Here are a couple of photos of our completed Sidekick roadster. My wife and I really enjoyed building it together.
By the way your instructions and drawings were right on.
We had to give up riding our individual bikes as my wife has vertigo and hearing problems, and I am 79 years old and had my right arm amputated 10 years ago. Now we both can enjoy biking, we can have a conversation while we peddal, all in all a very enjoyable ride.

A note from Ward And Anita Johnston , Canada. Look close some very nice modifications.
Hi Dan
Sending you some pics of what we call our Quad Pod.
Made up the Side Kick and found some local suppliers for the pipe & bike parts.
We added a vinyl top, jump seat, chrome fenders lights and a 48 volt motor and hit the streets in cow town. We take it to the grocery store, do our recycling and we go through the McDonald’s drive-thru getting lots of positive comments.
We give out your website to any who wish to make one and have had
lots of questions. Thanks for a great economical way to get around.
All the best
Ward and Anita Johnston
