    G'day Ian. How's the back? Can't keep a sidecar rider down hey!. You should strip everything not required on the bike and turn it into a chookchaser outfit. Go on, you know you want to:lol3:lol3:lol3. I wouldn't worry about the missues not riding with you. She would be miles in front of you because you can't catch her:D.

    I might be about time to put my current outfit build up I think.

    3legs.

    Good luck with the build .

    I think this sidecar will be better for the 1300.

    I don't know about Aus, but here in Texas wives complain bitterly when they are shoved into cargo boxes- I would stay with a passenger body, if I were you.
    Good luck!

    Hi FR700
    The bloke I got it from said it was on a triumph .
    Ha Ha Old Mule .good one :clap
    In Australia the wives do as there told or they stay home to do the washing and cleaning :hide

    My wife will not ride in a sidecar with me no more. I think when our sidecar wheel fell off on a ride a while back and i left her on the side of the road with the sidecar untill our daughter drove the 500km to pick her and the sidecar up might be the reason :thumb
