Second Chance – Wheelchair Accessible Sidecar – Rider
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.
From Wheelchair Van to Freedom
How does he get on the bike?
Take a look at the build
