Well, good and bad I suppose. Having that ringer in the bank every week can be good, but getting used to it can be a beotch when it goes away; having worked construction for years it becomes a way of life but it sure can be "exciting" at the end of the month. I never made a lot of money while self employed but I always knew when I was going to be "laid off" and there's a certain confidence factor there. I guess...

Rich, have you ever made any "contoured" hack seat inserts? Something along the lines of Recaro seats? Wife has a hip thing going on and the stock lump seat causes all kind of grief after a half hour or so.

Maybe something with a bit more shape to hold her into the seat without having to use the footrest so much?

Maybe along the lines of

Hey Rich, back in 2010 you made a complete set of camo clothing for my 2010 Gear Up; tonnneau cover, hack windshield skirt, hack door cover, spare tire cover and even a cover for the shovel. Are you interested in making another set but in black?

Better to PM me if you want to talk.

I have been sculpting my sidecar seats with side bolsters for 20 years. Not as exaggerated as a Recarro as there just isn't room in the sidecar available. The seat bottom is only 17" wide. Also the sidecar seat back is much shorter than a car seat! But I do put in wedges of firm foam in them for cheek and back support. The newest factory seats are copying what I have done wince the 90's.

I can still make tonneaus for the older sidecars with the steel loop fasteners. I have a pattern for a new 2015 sidecar to work from using the twist fasteners. But having no actual sidecar like that here to test one on, I can't guaranty a perfect fit.

Tire covers and side curtains and tractor seat covers are all things I can still do here. Just PM me for info!
yeah, I might be addicted to brake fluid. But I can stop any time I want.

I just got my 2013 T home today and was interested in a getting a tonneau cover for the car. The guy I bought the bike from said he had gotten a lot of help from folks on this site & recommended I look in the The Gray Market here first. What's the cost for a black vinyl tonneau cover? Can I use it with the windshield up or does it have to be folded down? Totally new to Urals and sidecars period - so forgive me my ignorance.

Back in 2002 Rich made my wife just a wedge shaped cushion for the sidecar. It is thicker towards the seat back. It has allowed her to get in and out easier as well and riding longer. It helps reduce the angle of the hips. Even after I bought her a Rich Maund sidecar sear she still has to have her Rich Maund seat wedge as well.

I could do it next month. Pretty booked up busy here for now. This was my first chance to look at the board since the CRAP Rally. I can still build all that stuff! Black boat canvas or black marine vinyl?

Tonneaus are $300
Windshield skirts are $120
Side curtains are $120
Tire covers, open or closed center are $120.
I still have the pattern for the older shovels when Ural first started using them. $40. To custom tailor one, I'd need the shovel here to work with. But I have a small shovel collection. I may already have one here to work with. Just need a pic.

Prices include shipping in the USA.

I can build tonneaus with leather patches with H shaped slits in them to allow the windshield rods to pass through. Also, my tonneaus can be rolled up towards the windshield and strapped into place to keep them out of the passengers knees when riding. If you remove the windshield, t he tonneau can be used as is. The w@*ed leather flaps on the patches can be pushed flat. They don't funnel water the way a grommet will. I also tailor my tonneaus to go over the grab handle vice through it. Better to keep water out that way. My tonneaus are also full double layers of marine fabric. They are much heavier than the soft light nylon ones that Ural has made for them.

Hey Rich, I have a new terracotta red 2017 CT and the black pilot and side car seats get really hot in this Florida sun, would love to get them redone in something lighter, any ideas in a good color and an estimate?

Now that car seat is an idea! Just take it all put and mount one of those, I am sure a car seat can be found to fit. Back tilting would be great to have a little access to trunk, but lose security as well. Sure it could work.

A Ural sidecar is 15" wide at the bottom. Good luck finding anything but a small boat cushion to fit.

Nope. Sorry. Not something I have ever looked at building.

So I guess making something like that, that will fit is beyond your capability? I am sure you would sell them. I may have to get an old seat frame and see what I can do.
