Doug Bingham of Side Strider in California would be the person to talk to about a vintage MX hack
Thank you RED. I think the DR missed the question cause a $3000 side car for $100 motorcycle is not cheap.
well you can steal a shopping cart and strap it on with hose clamps- it will be cheap and fun(to watch-take videos) but it won't be safe and it won't last very long. Just because you have a $100 bike doesn't mean you can slap together a safe rig for pennies.
With limited skills and limited experience you have limited options.
A used Jupiter, Velorex or Sputnik would work well for you but you still need good mounting hardware. If you get lucky finding a cheap used sidecar and can find someone with experience near you to help put it together you might be able to get it done around $1000, maybe less.
If you use this off road at all it needs to be well done, and even street only puts some pretty high loads on your mounts so for safety it needs to be done right.
Al Wenzel (CA) has 4 MX racing sidecars for sale - 2 are KX500 bikes going for a touch under $4K.
I guess I did miss the cheap part, I suppose that's why I never got around to putting one on my XL500.
Can I get electric lean on that shopping cart?
Wow, for around $4000 someone could have a kickass offroad sidehack. A custom framed, complete rig!!! And it would spank the crap out of anyone's Russian iron.
Why doesn't someone jump on that?
Yep Just bring the bike...
A really good video:

no fair! They get, what, 50 teams to start!
Some of those wrecks look nasty. Lets go easy w/ the jumping for a bit Ken.
I was impressed with the one wreck where the bike ran over the driver!
I liked the guy trying to run over the official
