That is a harley sidecar, could you post a couple more pictures of the sidecar mounting to the bike frame? that type of sidecar should have three mounting points. Top under the fuel tanks, front lower tied into the lower down tubes and the rear lower on the frame of the bike tied into the area by the passenger foot board.

I am curious as to how they did it and what may have been modified to do it.

Rear mount is home built like Lonnie said, the guy may have Used parts of oem rear mount seems I recall HD using the double u-bolt system on the rear of the bike frame I thought?

Your sidecar frame has a hydraulic drum brake those were used from 1997 on down, Now if you look on the sidecar frame that runs between the bike and sidecar body you may find a serial number either stamped there or a metal foil sticker tag. So it could very possibly be a 95

How about a picture of the lower and upper connections to the frame
