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.

Winter beater....wish you luck that the tubes from inside are still not too corroded. change all bearings and grease everything well.

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.
