These bodies are built by a local craftsman that specialises in period restoration and wicker work, and it is a work of love, and cannot be hurried.
The materials and workmanship is second to none, and the work is done by traditional methods by hand.
It is pleasure to watch these come together, however i can confirm that that there is no hurry in any of his work, as the material basically dictates the time it takes, and this how long it takes.
They are made wet and built in layers similar in construction to a boat, with ribs or bucks holding the form / shape.
I am pleased with the shape and design of this sidecar and i trust that the consensus is that this compliments the Invincible Jap.
I intend to coat this with a shellac, and tone down the patina slightly to make this look not quite so new, and blend in with the Invincible Jap.
These wicker bodies are available in limited supply and i would be pleased to pass on the details if any reader is interested.
They can be supplied in L/H or R/H configuration, however are made to order.
