Hello, I just purchased two sidecars from Ebay. One is a 562 Velorex and one looks like a Spirit Eagle or some type of California hybrid. Looks like a Velorex frame modified with square tubing with quite a swing arm using the Velorex shock and a 16 inch moped rim. What do you think?

Most likely started out as an early California Companion sidecar but now has home made parts onto a Velorex frame. You want to inspect the wheel on this, they were know to fail at both ends of the cast spokes.

WD40, let it soak, rap a few times with a dead blow hammer. sometimes works if not too corroded. Otherwise I find heating with a torch, rapping with a hammer and twisting or tapping out has gotten them loose for me.
