Sidecar project

Not the RGU. My 1996 FB needs a rest from the sidecar. Plan to go over it in the next year to ensure it last another 21 years. So granddaughter does not miss out on riding , swapping it to the 750 Street
Things have progressed a bit faster than expected. May make a test ride tomorrow.

I would think Fat Boy.

15 RGS Vivid Black. Lots of Black stuff cause we all know Black is the fastest color. Custom Dynamics turn signals and PlasmaRods.
A.C.E. powerflex headpipes, and a better than stock stereo.

Thanks, Mike. I figured it'd be something easy like that. Getting old sucks!

I followed a couple in/on one of these setups last summer. It was a triumph I think though. Interesting but looked nerve racking. Be safe out there and enjoy!

Finished it up last night just before dark. Ran it down the road with the body off. Felt good , so put the body on. You know it was time to ride. I am not new to a sidecar ,put it through some slow speed test. Then on to highway 16. 55, 65. 75 mph all good. Pictures of the finished project latter.
Wife and I already know when the time comes and the RGU is to much for us , there will be no trike, no Slingshot, no Spider. It will be a sidecar on the RGU.

Sidecar project

Looks sharp. I’ve never tried to ride one but hear that it is fun from those that have. Enjoy.

It is a blast. Wife and I made up our minds a long time back. When we can not longer physically deal with the RGU loaded up we will go Sidecar no trike of us. She can still ride on the bike and toss all the stuff in the sidecar.
