Picture and total build cost

Day dreaming of a side car setup. Please post a picture of your setup, with initial cost of bike plus cost to add/build side car. Curious how cheap (or expensive) a decent sidecar setup can be? Don't need stories or heavy details.

OK, you said decent, so this won't really apply,

Cost of non-running rig with locked up motor and burnt wires, 1500


parts, tires, lots of cans of Krylon, etc....

About 6-7 hundred.



Yes.... I get my bikes off the clearance rack.

Soooo, what did you think people on this forum do? It is called hacks for a reason.
Why would anyone try to explain their purchases to you? if you're not into them, you're not.

Ride a properly set up rig for MORE than 1 hour ( a week or two should do ) and you will understand OUR madness !!!.

I am drooling over these GS rigs, but the RPOC fits my budget and the past 8500km have been a blast!
