One question though, why is the hack on the right side, do they drive Brit style there ?
I've not seen one over here other than mine. But they do drive on the right side same as any other civilized country. I have one at home that has the hack on the right, thought I'd see how I like one on the left. It was just a random choice, could switch it over, but why? Just did it for fun anyways.
My commander told me that I couldn't have a motorcycle over here. So I asked him to define a motorcycle. He said "any motorized vehicle with two wheels" So... what could he say after I showed up with this?

Hack

I do not know for sure, I never found a name tag on it. I think it is a Spirit Eagle Sidecar,buy the way it looks. I think it is about 10 years older than the bike. I bought them together for my wife to start driving bikes. Now she won't drive it. I like it though & so do the kids.

I had a couple of requests to see the mounting parts on this outfit. We did a basic subframe and Utilized most of the mounting hardware provided.
Here are some pics:

Why a subframe for an R27? The thing was constructed for sidecar use. It has the fittings and the leading link from new.
