I have a 78 Honda 750 with a 200lb sidecar attached and steering is quite heavy, even with barbacks. I don't know of anyone that makes leading links for the 750.

I would think a heavier tug would require more ballast, not less ,because it's the disparity of weight (inertia) that causes the chair to rise. That's my logic?

Come on guys, Honda sells a new 750 shaft drive for $7500.00, that leaves $6500.00 for the side car. Actually, the sidecar would probably be $4500.00 and very nice. That leaves $2000.00 for farkles....

I have a 200 lb. home built sidecar on my 78 Honda 750. The steering is extremely heavy, even unladen, plus bar-backs. Would this set up make a big improvement?

Alternator

Old Wings can be a good buy, if the alternator is good. About 14 volts, running, is good.
To replace an alternator on a Wing, is not for the faint of heart.

UnAmerican

It would be un-American to pull a drivers license at an arbitrary age. Mandatory annual retesting would pass muster.
Teenagers are more dangerous than the elderly on the road.
