sidecar to Africa Twin

Hi! I want to install some sidecar (maybe Ural, Welorax or Sputnik) to my Africa Twin. So, I need help how to attach it to my bike. Is there some kind of kit to do that or do I have to make that myself? So, please if somebody can give me advices (maybe photos) I would be very thankfull!

The Africa twin is a very rare bike in the USA so we have never built a sidecar kit for one, Looking at photo's to build a sub frame you would have to build it fairly similar to how the V strom is built or the Triupmph Tiger. Basicly you would have to build cradle frame that bolts onto both sides of the bike up near the upper engine mounts and then also near the foot peg mounts. We are building a Triumph tiger sub frame today that once done I can post photo's of what it looks like.
The Sputnik sidecar would be a good match if you up grade the wheel. The Ural will work as well. The Velorex is a bit to light duty if you intend to go off road at all. Of course sidecars we build such as the M72D, M72DX and Enduro would also work well.

I know it's an old post, so I'm curious if you have attached it at the end :)

Cool2 try German and NL forums

Africa Twin was/is rather popular in Germany and there are many sidecar builders. So maybe in one of those forums you might find some ideas.

www.dreiradler.org
http://motorrad-gespanne.de/forum/

or as a subgroup in a Africa Twin forum e.g.
http://www.africa-twin.at/forum/portal.php

Mistä pain Suomesta olet?
