Very cool :thumbup:. I've never seen a sidecar on a crab before. Just regular buggies. I'm sure that will be a ton of fun especially for the passenger! Looking forward to the video! BTW what is the cylinder behind the front wheel? I thought it might be a balast tank or storage maybe?

Thanks for sharing :thumbup:

That is pretty ingenious jantie. At our annual buggy event one of the guys gives rides and people seem to love it!

the balance in a Crab is even more delicate then a regular buggy,
so a mistake followed by an eject is easily made hahahaha...


@ktguru: thanks!!
