That's an accident waiting to happen.

I'd take one look at that and walk slowly away shaking my head muttering..."no, no, no, no...."

Yea, looks to be actually behind the rear wheel. +
Left turns could be scary.

Sadly these sorry pieces of crap give people who don't know any better a very distorted idea about what a sidecar costs.

Folks will buy them!

looks like the accident already happened in the welding shop. What a disaster.

Wheel lead looks about right. Isn't the sidecar wheel supposed to be about 15% of the wheelbase ahead of the bikes rear wheel

OK so I've read about how sidecar wheel lead affects handling but has anyone actually ridden one with negative lead? I would be scared more on a left hander than a righty. HUMM.... I wonder? Looks like a easy chair to fly, dangerous left turns, but I'll bet dollars to donuts that if you were a adrenalin junkie, a ride as a monkey might be your ticket!!

Yep, 15 percent lead not trail. The one they have listed with hinged lid has lead, but looks lighter than my storage box that is very easy to fly.

seems it is the sidecar only for sale
if the present owner has it attached wrong (which it is), that does not mean the next owner of the sidecar would have to make the same install mistake
it might be an OK rig for a small bike

Oh ya, good for a small bike,,,,,,. Those things come with a piece of pipe sticking over at 90 degrees, the idea is you put it under your bike, jack it up and weld it to your frame,,,oh ya, this is a good idea.

I go back to my original statement, sorry piece of shit. Was that diplomatic enough?
