Honda 919 w/sidecar

I do volunteer work for the Special Olympics, and always wanted a hack to give Downs kids a ride, but gave up the dream when I sold my Nighthawk and got my 9er. Scanning ebay tonight and found this stunner...

ive been watching that auction to see how much it goes for...

I wonder how it handles as a hack? Did they have to fab up a sub-frame for mounting points?

I personally think that chair is a big oversized for the look of the 919, but good on em!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I was wondering the same things; I had found a hack for the Nighthawk when the 919 came into the picture; I can't imagine how this thing attaches, and you're right, it does look large for the bike, but I'm sure the 100+ hp would handle it much better than the 68 hp of the NH, and the riding position is comparable... you could say goodbye to any leaning, though... sweet looking set up.

Oh you can still lean in a side car, but it's sketchy business

Hello, I stumbled upon this post and created an account just to post a reply. I am the owner of this sidecar. Thank-you very much for the comments. I purchased it from a bmw motorcycle dealership in Gerogia. It was supposed to be used in the food network show feasting on asphalt as a camera bike. However the producer returned it as it wouldn't work out for them. I purchased it to ride with my daughter who is special needs. However I am selling it because she has just gotten too big to ride in the sidecar with somebody else to hold her. The sidecar mounts with many complicated brackets that are fully adjustable, a quick coupler for brake lines and a plug for headlight/turn signals/power height adjustment of the sidecar. It is extremely fun to ride. Also, the first 8000 takes this gorgeous one of a kind.

This is the part that interests me the most...Can you post up some pics of the attachment points, and explain how the chassis was modified? How does the 919 handle with the chair attached? I've read a lot about how a sidecar can add some strange inputs in acceleration and braking, as well as normal steering. Is a steering damper fitted, or any suspension mods?


Thanks!
