Jesse James’ Airstream Sidecar

“See More. Do More. Live More”. Could be the motto of a biker but it is the slogan of Airstream Trailers. “Adventure is all around you, just waiting to be found. It haunts the streets of old ghost towns, chases the sun down coastal highways, and lies in ambush around the next bend, and the next, and the next”. Jesse James pays tribute to the 70-year old Airstream iconic brand with this sidecar mimicking the unforgettable pop riveted aluminum body of its vehicles. The bike is built using Jesse James 200 mm Dominator frame, is powered by a 113” S&S engine and use a 6-speed Baker transmission. But this custom sidecar merit is in the craftsmanship of its body formed by Jesse himself. Want to see it up close? Travel to the Airstream headquarter in Ohio where the sidecar is in permanent exhibition. West Coast Choppers. Airstream Trailers.

    it IS beautiful, but…

    if that is the fuel tank above the front cyclinder, the motto “See More. Do More. Live More” is going to take a lot of time to fulfill because you will need to make FREQUENT stops for go juice!!!

    That is not the gas tank. The tank is actualy built into the back of the side car from pics I have seen in magazines. That is more of a storage compartment. It hinges open from one side. I dig the ride.
