Jawa sidecar

This is posted on craigslist as a Jawa sidecar but it looks like a Velorex... I'm newb about sidecar but my Google searches return a Jawa velorex which leads me to believe it is velorex.

Any insight?

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/4130520521.html

Other than normal things to look for, any recommendation on things to look for and would velorex brackets work for mounting this to a 2010 Bonneville?

Thanks,
Jim

Yep, Velorex in what looks like a nice condition.

Will work fine on a light ( up to 500/650 ) bike !

I understand the 16 (?) mm axle is too thin to withstand the forces of a heavier bike. I think people sometimes convert them to 21 mm ?

Its a Velorex 562 .

Like Max said the Velorex is made for a smaller bike and the axle should be upgraded , I have all the parts to upgrade mine to a 22 mm. axle. I just need some time to get it done.


$1350 is way high for that model car and it looks like it missing some of the hardware to bolt it to the bike and a windshield. I paid about half of that price for mine and may have paid too much.
