Mon Oct 13 2014 porzi.wentland at gmx.de Vodac Sidecars Hello there! I am a student for conservation of technological heritage. At the moment I am working on a cycle pulled trailer by the company "Vodac". I can't seem to find any information on this company, I only came across this name on your website referring to the welbikes. It seems to have been a company specialised on side cars or trailers. Do you perhaps have any information concerning "vodac" or know where I could look for it? I'd be very happy if so. I attached some photos. The database says the trailer was manufactured in 1952. Many thanks and greetings from Glasgow, Eva Wentland Glasgow
Images of the Vodak child's trailer are in the sidecar gallery.

There is a newly published book on Czech sidecars which contains
photos and history of approximately 34 different makes.
The text is in Czechoslovakian language. The book is
available through several English book sellers.

Many obscure Czech sidecars are listed with photos on the Motorcycle
Club Praha web site.
Look under "Sidecars made in Bohemia" for the listing with photos.
They would be good items for your web site.

Troika According to sidecar-cz.com, the Troika is designed by Heiner Heidenwang and the components are manufactured by EML, and the sidecars are available only as complete, finished outfits. Past models included the Troika SR 80/100 based on the aircooled boxer.

Nowadays, a motorcycle sidecar might not arouse the same ecstasy as
it used to bikes in early days, but the latest vehicle by Francois
Knorreck is a sidecar with difference that gives an entirely new
definition to the sidecars. Dubbed "Snaefell," the 1000cc Laverda
motorcycle has three exhausts, and its sidecar offers a luxury ride
in comparison to regular sidecars. The designer has employed
different parts of a Kawasaki 1000RX and a number of
cars to accomplish the motorcycle sidecar, which took 10 years and
nearly 15,000 Euros to combine biking and luxury car ride in a
single vehicle. http://thekneeslider.com/archives/2009/06/29/snaefell-laverda-sidecar-project/

CZ et al sidecars
You may wish to see an obscure Czech sidecar site: www.volny.cz/sidecar.
Particularly see photos of CZ-Stpye.
In the event that you are not familiar with this site, it
lists some 45 plus prewar german and austrian sidecar manufacturers
and includes photos and other data relating to some of the
Best wishes. Jonathan Hayt

Your excellent web site does not include certain European sidecars
that you may wish to add:
Danish sidecars: Bender, Dania, Star, Sterling, Engstrom, and
Nimbus. Your photos of Nimbus combiinations include ACAP and,
I believe, a green Nimbus sidecar. Additionally, there are
several photos of a red Nimbus motorcycle with a red sidecar that
has vertical chrome or alloy trim strips and a blunt nose.
That sidecar is not identified in the captions but it is a Dania..
Under Stoye sidecars, you may wish to add the following Stoye
licensed products: CZ-Stoye (Czech), Haller-Stoye (Swiss) and
Precision (Belgian And French).
Under DDR, the following: Falke/Falkensee, Gewo, MAW, HTH and
Wunsche. There are others but, I think, for the moment that is
enough so I'll stop here.
Australian sidecars include Dusting
“The Sidecar - A History” by Geoff Brazendale, a limited edition,
250pp, A4, quality hardback book covering the complete story of the
origins and development of the sidecar in the 20th century.
The book includes a section on bicycle sidecars and an appendix of
over 300 makes.
