You will still need to custom make some mounting parts for your particular motorcycle and this kit will give you a great start.
The kit will work on homemade sidecars also but not most late model the USA made sidecars as they use 1/2″ eye bolts and heim joint mounts.
U-clamps can also be used on SOA Eagle Sidecar and Easy Rider sidecar frames to mount struts to. They work as a sliding mount that way just as the OEM parts did. May have some marks on the paint from shipping.
Installation is a 4-5 hour process, involving these simple operations:
- Attaching the frame of the sidecar to the frame of the motorcycle.
- Adjusting toe-in and lean-out of the motorcycle in relation to the sidecar.
- Connecting the electrical wires from the sidecar to the electrical circuits of the motorcycle.
These operations are given in easy-to-understand step-by-step procedures, which require no special tools other than regular shop wrenches, several wooden blocks or bricks for propping up the sidecar and the motorcycle, two straight strips of wood for toe-in measurements, and an angle bracket for measuring lean-out.
