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?

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?

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.
