I have a great admiration for people who are able to build things with their hands. Having two left hands has made it impossible for me to make anything, except maybe some eggs for breakfast. It's therefore that when I look at these photos, I'm in awe.

Here's someone who has made from a Laverda motorcycle a sidecar. Not just any sidecar, but a supercar sidecar, including gulfwing doors. The sidecar part looks amazing, a true work of art. It's almost like it came straight out of the factory.

The builder, a Frenchman named Francois Knorreck built this in his spare time. The Laverda, named Snaefell, was built in a mere 10,000 hours... incredible. Since it was a part-time build, it took 10 years to finish.

Parts were used from other vehicles, like a Kawasaki 1000, VW Golf GTI, Audi 80 and a Citroen Xantia car. Further gear was found on BMW and Renault cars.

Just have a look at the detail that went into this motorcycle:
