Working on it, Got it! I rode a friends servi-car and a VW trike in the 70's. Attempted to buy a side-car for my 650 Yamaha in the 80's, but after a few rides on the guy's Sidehack, I bowed out of that deal. I would still like to try out a fiberglass bodied, long front end, VW powered Shreik trikes.

I had a Moto Guzzi V7 with a Steib in the 80s and it was an awesome winter ride in sleet and snow. I wouldn't mind having another sidehack for my 883.

I was hoping to see at least one Sportster with a sidecar.

I like the look of the Sportster with a wood flatbed.
But $5k+ in parts . . .
I'll go be poor somewhere else.

2 wheels. But side-car mounts and hack are waiting on me to be painted and mounted on the 1983 XLS.

Edit: So technically have a sidecar. Just yard art for now. So no vote.

I think about Sporties as nimble two wheeled bikes... at the boundary between light cruisers and sport heritage...

thinking to bolt a sidecar on her... IMO is like to someone who chain me in the ankles with iron balls
