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,
Images of the Vodak child's trailer are in the sidecar gallery.

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.

Hawk or Hawke? 1930's
Believed to have used some Dusting mounts. Rear has hawk tail shape
Attached pics of the Hawke sidecar. Only story to come with it was
that it was used in 1939 for a honeymoon in South Australia. The
felt hub seal outer has GMH stamped into it.

Binder, Hiller, Favorit sidecars
A few more sidecars for your
sidecar page: Binder (Not Bender)
Hiller (not Haller-Stoye) and
Favorit = all German postwar but classic design.

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.

CZ et al sidecars
You may wish to see an obscure Czech sidecar site:
www.volny.cz/sidecar. Particularly see photos of CZ-Stpye.
Another web site of which you probably aware is: www.vorkriegs-seitenwagen.de
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 various makes.
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.
Thanks to Jonathon Hayt
Australian sidecars include Dusting and Goulding.
“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.
