Just don't know that much about them.
DaveBall- Given that you're already into Airheads I think if it were me I'd go for a Ural and get the benefit of 2 wheel drive. They look 100 years old, and you can find them under $5k pretty easily.

They're designed to have a sidecar, and you've already got the skills to hold one together.... By the time you find a scooter and put a sidecar on it you'll have that much $$ into it.
