For Gods sake don't!
I thought it looked like a good idea and fitted the same sidecar as pictured in the 2 fat ladies picture, Watsonian GP. Looked fantastic, Took it out for a test ride ( yes it had all been set up properly), hit the first bend, then hit the kerb. Luckily the kerb was high enough to force the bike around the corner. As it straightened up I was brave and accelerated, this caused uncontrolled wobbling of the handlebars but smoothed out at about 40mph. Then......Oh F**k.....bend, slammed the anchors on and managed to fly around the courner at 5mph, which in my opinion is the safe top speed.
Hats off to anyone who rides a sidecar, very brave or insane...the jurys still out.
Removed the sidecar and sold it, I do still however have the full engine cradle assembly (over £500 from Watsonian and at least a 3 month delivery wait) for anyone brave or at I'd enough
