    I'm looking for a little help here. I'm a sidecar newb looking to build a rig using an 82 Yamaha Seca 750 as the tug and the attached hack. I don't know what the hack is, though, and was looking for some advice identifying it.

    I'd also appreciate some opinions on whether the tug and hack in question would be a good fit together.

    A lot of those turning up...and a lot of people deciding they are too fragile/whatever...I think that they look fine...I'd gladly give up a few bills to have a place to start!

    Yup, looks like a Spirit to me also.

    My second rig c.1999-2001 was an '83 Seca 750 mated to a Velorex 562. Similar sized sidecar IIRC. It was a good matchup to the compact Seca. Get a steering dampner, fork brace and tighten up the head bearings though.
