Teddy Buckland owns several handicap motor vehicles. One in particular is his 1977 Honda automatic motorcycle.
Teddy has owned this custom made bike for two and a half years. His friend Leslie George originally made the sidecar.
Teddy rebuilt the entire bike by placing the pre-made sidecar on a motorcycle he purchased off of Ebay for $1,500.
It took about one year to get the bike running properly and looking good.
His helping paramedic of 20 years, Alice Gerard, said, â€śA whole lot of people in this town have had their hands in this project.â€ť
Buckland is considered a C 6-7 quadriplegic from falling off a 25 foot drop while working at the Phillips Plant about 25 years ago.
He broke his neck, causing him to be paralyzed from the neck down.
Bucklandâ€™s interest was sparked to build this bike after seeing another just like it that had been built.
Mr. Buckland also owns the first 2011 factory-made Ford pickup truck with a brand new Rhino lift built inside.
â€śHeâ€™s always got some project going. There is never a dull moment with this man,â€ť Ms. Gerard said.
Teddy stated that a few future projects he had in mind are building more handicap sidecars for motorcycles, and placing a sidecar on an ATV four wheeler or a Polaris Ranger two-seater. Buckland also stated, â€śIf I can help somebody like me and answer any questions about how to build one, I can show somebody how to build one.â€ť
