Thanks for the video links. Those are both Cozy sidecars (Rocket and Euro) which are almost sold as a dealer installed accessory in the U.S. There is a site http://www.cyclesidecar.com/, that has the sidecars and mounting hardware that are RE specific as well as "Universal".

Our local RE dealer (George Rahn in Fairbanks, AK) mentioned that he's sold a couple of rigs and rides his all over the place. Plus I have the same car on my airhead.

Disaster

Hi guys thankyou for all of the spirited posts in this thread. Rest assured the all thread and u bolts was not my final draft on that top mount. Sadly while riding my bike to work at 430 am i hit a kangaroo and have done a lot of damage to my elbow and arm. 8 hours In surgery so far and enough pain killers to sink a battle ship. The build will still b going ahead but will now involve the insurance company and a few others factors I hadn't previously.

OH, NOOOO! Sorry to hear that! Sort of what I was talking about, to expect the unexpected! Sure hope it's only a temporary setback and not major structural etc. in the arm! Please take it real easy and follow those sawbone's rules for recovery. Hopefully you'll be up and at 'em in no time and no permanent damage.

Sorry to hear about the roo incident, guess that is a problem down there.
You rest up and take care of yourself. Follow thru on all your PT.

Plenty of time to get the sidecar together.

Sorry to hear about the accident, did you get to keep the roo for diner?

Also, glad to hear about the threaded rod and u-bolts. You might be like me and need to think in solid parts, much easier to see how things fit and work like that. I'd hate to think the comments I'd get if these guys saw my mock up of the XS400 sub-frame! Cut down 2X4 pieces glued together, probably should have used oak or maple for more strength!

Hope you mend fast.
