P18031: Accessible Motorcycle Sidecar


Project Summary Project Information

Numerous people enjoy the freedom of the open road on a motorcycle. However, not everyone has the opportunity to experience that joy due to physical limitations.

Our group’s goal is to design an accessible motorcycle sidecar which allows people confined to wheelchairs to participate. This design solution shall be available at a low cost and with the best user experience possible. Specifically, this project is to modify an existing Ural sidecar for wheelchair accessibility.
