When I was a kid in the Philippines, my family owned a sidecar that attached to Randy’s bike. These things were normally used to chauffeur family members to the market, movies, or anywhere you needed to go. It was great for cruising the neighborhood with.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted one here in the US. The thing is, these side cars are usually hand made by some welder in the Philippines, and they are made out of steel. You can pretty much find them at any LBS for as little as a few hundred pesos…remember, the US Dollar is about fifty pesos there…
So why did I bring this up. Well for one thing, I love any bike that has more than one function. I really dig my Xtracycle just because its so practical. Bakfiets are cool too because they are the ultimate in cargo bikes. But as I think about the side car back in the Philippines, I saw how practical that would be here. The only problem is, getting one sent here. Luckily I’ve got an uncle there that is looking into sending me one. Not so sure how much it would all cost, but I think it would be so cool if we did score one!
