This was my first rig. 2004ish. An ironhead Sporty with a Velorex. It didn't seem so small until my BIG brother got in it. I didn't own a car at the time, this was my daily.

Dave, nice looking set up. Did you build your own LL or buy aftermarket? 

 

 

 

 Very good looking Tour Glide

Thanks, I bought it from a seller on Italian eBay, it was built by Sidecar Italia. I described the installation in a thread on ADVRider. (I am davet2 over there.)

Thanks Smitty, I've had it for 10 years and it has gone through a few changes in that time. I started with a stock Harley sidecar, it now has a Lak sidecar frame with a suspension and the front end has changed twice now. I put on an EML trail reducer from Eurowing 4 or 5 years ago and put the leading link on last year.

(New to the Forum) Yamaha FZ1 with a Hanagan sidecar. I sent the bike to Hanagan's and they created the frame custom to fit the bike. Of course they did the full sorting of the toe-in, bike angle, etc.  The package has elec. tilt, sidecar braking linked with the rear motorcycle brake, and numerous styling options. In addition to the sidecar build, I also added a color matching five point race harness to help keep my son properly oriented during our rides. 

I've owned this hack for 19 years and have enjoyed many miles with my handicapped son aboard.

Ben

Welcome aboard, that is a fine looking rig you have there. I'm sure in those 19 years you and your son have had some wonderful times with it

I as I am sure others would like to hear about some of them if you care to share.

Will someone please help me identify the manufacture of this sidecar? I don't have a clue!

Thanks,

I am a brand new Member of USCA I have only been riding a motorcycle with sidecar for a month and I am loving it. I have a 2002 Harley Davidson, Sportster with a Ural sidecar, (not sure of the year).

Hi Dennis, welcome to the offset sidecar universe.  Sportsters can make good sidecar tugs. We had one for six years before selling to a friend:

Maddie at Bugscuffle

There are a couple of modifications that can help a Sportster become a great sidecar tug.  Let me know if you'd like to discuss.

Our newest, needs lots of love :

yes, leaning with a sidecar takes some serious getting used to.

Newest addition to the sidecar family....a 2019 Honda Goldwing w/DCT and a 2022 Hannigan gen 3 Dream sidecar.

Just brought it home from Kentucky, arrived home in Washington State yesterday. It drove perfectly, even at 93.14159 mph.
