Should I? And what is it?

Complete rig for not bad price, but I'm not interested in the big tugboat bike! I like the hack, tho. Thinking it might look good on, oh, maybe a Honda CX650E? But what is this hack? I think it's a California Friendship (I or II?) but not sure. And perhaps too much for the bike? You, oh revered ones, what say ye?

Thumb Of Course!

Of course! (you expect a different answer here?)
Its a neat looking sidecar. (I live to far below to know what)
Bolt it to a thing with a motor in the middle and wheels each end.
A good CX650 would do it.
Have a go I say.
Cheers, Bruce

The sidecar looks like a modified California sidecar. It looks like it is an early torsion bar suspension frame that was changed to have a shock. They also changed the area around the windshield, added the marker and front light. It may have also been made a bit wider.
But this is all a guess, I have not seen another like it.

Thanks guys. Of course you're going to say yes I saw that coming.
And Jay, thanks for your input. My thoughts, too. I like the mods. Will keep you all posted.

I'm tending to go along with Jay. The California Friendship, non-opening body that has been widened. Looking through the windshield the seat looks much nicer/wider than the stock bucket seat the Friendship model used. If it looks as good in person as in the picture I'd sure be willing to spend your money on it!

Well, that didn't work out. Rig is gone. Just have to keep looking. Thanks for all the input, tho!
