    Truth on the steering improvement. Formerly one had to maintain so much away-from-sidecar handlebar effort that the forks seemed to be twisted from axle to bars!!

    Sidecars commonly are fitted to the LEFT in LH drive countries - countries that drive on the RIGHT are mainly where what Napoleon wanted, was deemed important! Then again , Napoleon was LEFT-handed!

    It means that I have to mount from the right, and that left-handers are the corners where flying the 'car is a danger, baring speed-reduction or sufficient ballast in the 'car.

    Earlier kickstart model BMs could be difficult to -- kick! You have the hack bodywork at your backside.

    Ural GearUps with 2WD are not road-registerable.

    It WOULD be nice but the Mobec kit is too rich for my blood.

    To run a cross-shaft to the RIGHT (as that is what's wanted in RHD countries) you need a singlesided rearend where the swingarm is on the LEFT, like this 2008 Honda CB1000R. The hub rotates, and is unobstructed, so makes a suitable place for fitting a universal to power a samespeed shaft to the RIGHT. Of course, a declutching system is required for hard pavement as the Ural GearUP also uses.

    The R80ST Monolever is suitable, for this conversion, in LHD countries.
