    Motor Bike Sidecar

    Does anyone know where I can get a proper side car for my bike. I have a new Honda Forza and I want a sidecar for my missus to sit in. Not a side cart used on a sling but a proper covered in model.

    Where are you? In Udon there is a place near airport that does "proper" sidecars, not the saloongs or however someone wants to translitterate the thai word for a flimsy cage on wheels.

    Big Gary you are now in luck. there is a new company in Puket that manufactures sidecars especially for scooters. Go to my-sidecar.com and you will see all of the information needed. Hope this helps.

    For about the same money as you are going to spend on ruining the bike you can pick up a cheap Suzuki Jeep. a far safer option. Motorbikes were never designed to have a chair bolted onto them. My friend did something similar back home but kept tipping the thing over every time he turned a left hand corner
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    Not to mention the the suzuki Jeep will be legal to use on public roads where as a side cart is not.

    Good chance of a cheeky knicker shot with that low sidecar.

    Should be compulsory.

    Hey Buddy!

    Guess you pulled that pic from my thread on GT-Rider, or perhaps the old Tiger-Sachs forum?

    Buying a Tiger Retro with Sidecar



    It was a great rig when I lived out in the "sticks" but I had no use for it once I moved back into the city.



    Just to clarify a couple errors in the thread. This rig passed inspection and was certified as a road-legal 3-wheel motorcycle. (Of course very few Thai coppers know that and I had to educate a bunch of them in my area and ended up attaching a copy of the certification to the back of the sidecar's seat for easy reference).


    It was fine for cruising around the neighborhood and running my son to and from his nearby pre-school, but I'd never recommend such a rig for any kind of long distance travel.



    If handles completely differently from a motorcycle and above ~60-70 kph it was pretty skittish and dangerous IMO.


    ps. the sidecar makes a pretty good crib!

    Cool! Not familiar with "Cozy", have any pics?

    Your sidecar thread on GT-Rider went quiet and I was wondering if you were making progress.

    buying a sidecar



    Let us know how that goes! You know already that you'll need to have the rig inspected and approved by your Land Transport Dept in order for it to be road legal, though of course hoards of locals with their home made sidecars never bother doing that.

    It seems that at the minimum a sidecar in Thailand needs adequate lighting front and rear and a functioning brake on the 3rd wheel to pass inspection. Beyond that I'm not sure what else they might be looking for.

    Happy Trails!

    Looks like an old Stieb and not a coincidence as they had a business relationship with Steib. Cozy also make a canoe style model.
    The windscreen is a bit much and I am thinking of a Brooklands style screen

    Now to find a bike for it


    Struggling to add a pic?

    The windscreens shown are not what I am after, but a Brooklands screen would look great

    Just a note if not already here. It is nay impossible to get an existing registered bike changed from two-wheeler to three. You have to buy new and register it as three wheeler or equipped with a side car like the Tiger one.
    That being said i do know a guy in Chiang Mai with a maxi scooter and sidecar but he has very weak legs so maybe registered as a disabled person vehicle? Or maybe he doesn't care and rides anyway.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    Those who cannot change their mind, cannot change anything.

    I know nothing about them, but drive past their workshop often and have seen some pretty neat trikes and sidecar fabrications there.
