Hi Edward. I’m in city of Invercargill, Southland Province. regards Chris. I See you are hitching a car to a BMW ! Do you need photos of sidecar to frame setup at all , as I have some taken when the local sidecar Guru Stu Kennady was engineering one onto a similar BMW here with a separate connection frame ,( to bolt to bike & then connects to sidecar ) ! Chris DuPont. P.S. I’m still working out how to get around the site at the moment.June 28, 2014 at 8:00 am #5841
Yes I’d love some photo’s. Another user, Coriman, also posted some of a frame on an earlier BMW in the Sidecar builds section.June 28, 2014 at 8:57 am #5844StinkyParticipantRank: 50cc Rider

You need to post some pics Chelle, especially of the Royal Enfield. My Velorex was hooked up to an Enfield before I bought it.December 24, 2014 at 4:13 am #5942Sidecar-DaveParticipantRank: 50cc Rider
Hi all. My name is David and I live in Hamilton,NZ. I have been interested in sidecars for a number of years. About four years ago I decided to have a go and at fitted a Cosy chair to a honda super magna. Unfortunately, I could not over come the heavy steering problems, due to the excessive rake of the front forks. I ended up selling both units individually, out of dissappointment. However, my interest in sidecars remained.
More recently, I bought a GS 850 Suzuki sidecar unit through trademe. Unfortunately, this also had steering issues. However, perseverance paid off and after many years of wanting the sidecar experience, I finally have got there. This sidecar his very user friendly and a joy to ride. I am hoping to meet up with other enthusiasts through this site. Cheers allDecember 25, 2014 at 5:47 am #5943
Hi Dave and welcome
I’m in Hamilton as well, and there are a half dozen or so other sidecars in Hamilton that I know of.December 26, 2014 at 1:31 am #5944Sidecar-DaveParticipantRank: 50cc Rider
Hi Edward and thanks for your reply. I have seen a couple of sidecars around Hamilton but due to heavt traffic, I haven’t been able to contact or get a photo. I am keen to meet up with other enthusiasts so if anyone is keen just email me here. Also, I believe there is a sidecar registry for enthusiasts in Auckland but I cannot find any information about this. Cheers David
