Side Car

I'm debating on sourcing a side car. Anybody have experience with them?

Thanks Ras. I knew in my head who had it, but seeing some of the vets no-longer around, I couldn't remember his nane.

Hope all is well.

Brent had one as well. He's still around, but maybe not on channel 11. Last seen at September VYR.

sidecar

I have a 78 with a Hitchhiker. Excellent bike for a sidecar. The only drawback is it has a lot of trail. If you have a standard it can be cured using parts from a special. Stock trail is 5.12". If you install a special front forks and brakes you will reduce it to 3.5. add the special top tree will make it 2.5"

Fred showed up recently in a facebook post saying he had sold his sidecar.

I too would love to find a sidecar! We are oddly similar with our yellow bikes.....

Lol, Nate. I have a new pup that may not do well being left at home. I want him to tag along.

My dogs don't like being left home either, but I would not trust either of my dogs in a sidecar. Would have to put in a harness to hold mine in.
