Second Chance – Wheelchair Accessible Sidecar – Rider


Brothers disability motorbike

Pepe was an avid motorcyclist and especially a tinker.

By an accident he lost both his legs in November 2006. On September 2, 2007, a number of friends united to build “something” for Pepe.

With the help of these and more friends, it was possible for Pepe to ride a motorcycle on his Segunda Oportunidad (second chance).

On July 5, 2009 almost 2 years later the Wheelchair Accessible Sidecar was delivered.

Take a look at the build


In the following video, a fabricator is busy building the custom sidecar for Pepe. Attaching the sidecar to an Intruder 1400 was the birth of Pepe’s Segunda Oportunidad.

  1. thank you ill keep looking trying to sell the corvette too

  2. ive been trying to get a wheelchair sidecar built for my 1999 harley davidson roadking police bike for my client she has muscular scierosis and loves bikes so i want to do this for her i have a 1984 chevy corvette i want to give to anyone that can help me out

    1. Hi Michael, I researched the value of a 1984 Chevy Corvette, and they appear to be worth between $20,000 – $40,000, obviously this depends on the condition of the vehicle.

      I would just like to let you know that you can purchase a wheelchair accessible sidecar for under $10,000 ready to go: https://www.abilitymotorcycles.com/product/dmc-sidecars-wheelchair-accessible-sidecar-rig

      Or even under $5,000 for this one: https://www.abilitymotorcycles.com/product/motorcycle-handicap-sidecar-universal-fits-all-models

      Just letting you know there are options that may provide a sidecar solution that allows you to keep your Corvette, however if there are any fabricators out there willing to manufacture a sidecar to Michael’s requirements, I encourage you to reply to Michael’s comment. This is a generous offer for a very worthy cause. Good luck Michael. Ride Safe.

    2. Hi Michael, I have forwarded your offer/request to the fabricator that did the work for my daughter: https://www.abilitymotorcycles.com/shanniahs-story-from-hiring-to-building-a-wheelchair-accessible-sidecar
      I will let you know if Brendon is interested in your offer/request. 🙂

      1. thanks so much i need to let the corvette go dont have the room for it my client comes first thank you mike

      2. Hi Mike, I heard back from the fabricator, Brendon said he can only do paid jobs. I wish you luck and success in your project. Cheers Dave
