Ural SideCar by Peter Adams

Mention Ural sidecars to any bike enthusiast and they’re bound to roll their eyes. Clunky, oversized and not the most powerful bikes formally on the road, the hesitation is almost expected. It’s this very reasoning however, that encouraged Ural and dog owner Peter Adams from Queensland to build a sidecar bike designed to transport his surfboard and Boxer dog ‘Argo’ around town.

Adams, currently an aircraft designer, began his modification by increasing the sidecar track by four inches, stabilizing the rig for his pup and board. He also added a set of stainless steel surfboard rack mounts to prevent corrosion from the salty air. And to store all his other beach belongings, Adams replaced the original heavy steel panels with molded epoxy composite panels. Now to keep the engine cool on those hot Australian summer days, Adams increased the sump power of the engine to keep the air cooled motor in check. Other modifications include LED blinkers, end mirrors and a mount for a Garmin GPS; because the search for the perfect wave never ends. [Via: Bike Exif]
