Sidecar rigs

does anyone here have experience running a sidecar rig? I've always admired a nice looking hack, and I wonder about how it would feel to pilot one. I'm curious what other folks think about em.


Here's a pretty nice rig based on a Suzuki Bandit 1250...note the heavily modified front end and square tires...





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

Ever since I watched some english 'car monkeys go dirt trackin on them I've been relatively amazed, so please, put me on the pro-hack side.

Seen some nice customs like that zook there. Also seen some hack hackwork too! If I had 12 g to spare? Ural, baybeee.

I've always wanted to try a sidecar. That one there looks pretty dang good. Resembles the back end of my old 928S. But it's true, you can get a new URAL with reverse for around $12k.
