The thread is four years old, but it's a good thread resurrection...of course, the girls are too big to ride in it now and one should be on her own bike by now

This is just plain NEAT!

He made it removable, so drivetrain location or accessibility shouldn't be an issue.

I would have replaced the side plywood pieces with sheet aluminum and either riveted or bolted them in place.

My "baby" is about to have a baby so I don't need this. YET. Soon, I'll be bringing out the trailer for my first grandkid. (I'm that old???) However, WOW!!! This is beautiful. Nice work. I was considering getting the "sidecar" adapter for my Big Dummy. Now, it is tempting to get it and build a kid's sidecar out of it. You are inspirational.
