We first came across Project GUS earlier this year. Virginia-based custom bike shop had the idea to put a sidecar on Honda’s tiny, zippy, 124 cc Grom motorcycle because, why not? One of the fans of the project was a YouTubber out of Texas who though the GUS, aka Grom Utility Sidecar, would be the perfect thing to let his brother, Nick, experience the joy that all living humans should be able to experience if they so desire — riding, or at least riding sidecar on, a motorcycle. As Nick has a rare genetic disorder that affects the nervous system, a sidecar was likely the only way he’d be able to experience a ride.
After a Go Fund Me project raised funds and Industrial Moto donated all labor costs, a custom Grom and GUS were delivered to Texas where Nick got to very happily experience the beauty of zipping along, powered by a motorcycle. With orange powder coating, custom bucket seat and harness, safety features and cool finishing touches, Project Angel is not only an awesome looking ride, it’s a great story of what people can do when they help each other out.
