Based out of Valley Center, Kansas, Tomco Enterprises made it possible for riders confined to a wheelchair to enjoy motorcycling thanks to a sidecar with the controls transferred over.

Each Tomco was individualized slightly for the customer, but the general concept was that a rider could wheel his/her chair into the sidecar and secure it down with three safety belts. Gauges are moved over to the sidecar, and the right hand controls are basically the same. Things get a bit different on the left side – now the lever handles the rear brake and a separate arm lever controls the gear shifter. Steering is operated with a tie rod from the sidecar to the regular top triple tree. For more on Tomco (no longer in business), check out this October 1988 issue of American Motorcyclist.

This example has 2,600 miles and the seller says that it is in good running condition. Find this Honda/Tomco pairing for sale in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania for $3,500 or best offer here on Facebook Marketplace.
