TRIUMPH AMERICA / VOLOREX 565

12

My new Velorex 565 arrived a few days ago, got it uncrated and ready to bolt up. Anyone out there done this before with an America? I have only seen one, its obviously from the U. K. because the tub is streetside.

John, congratulations on getting your new Velorex. Being a holiday weekend, am sure someone with knowledge and experience will post up advice once they return back home.

We make proper bike specific NOT universal mounts $895, These fit the America and speedmaster only.  For the Velorex I do recommend up grading the sidecars mounting system as out lined at this article.  Sidecar Mounting | DMC Sidecars

Thanks much Jan! Pretty excited about this  rig! Its my fourth sidecar outfit but my first one with a Triumph as a tug. Here are a few pix of my  previous rigs, a Honda Ascot with an older California car, a Ural Tourist, and a Honda Rebel 300 with a 563 Velorex.

What year is the America?  I had a 04 put 25000 miles on it.  But I put raked,Chang trail whichever your happy with.  Got the tree changed from a man in wester Canada, I don’t think he dose that any more. Now I’m ridding 2012 Triumph Bon. SE got 20,00 I think, got a greatly modified Indian sidecar.  On it. Rudy

Hi Rudy,

The America is a 2012, when I got it it had 4850 miles on it, still does, I don't want to ride it without the hack, at my age I don't trust my legs anymore to hold it up when stopped. The hack is a 2021 Velorex 563, just got it. I should have it together and aligned, ready to ride by mid week, next week. I will post pix when completed.
