Here's the one that broke 4 (maybe 5) Bonneville speed records in 1987/88. One at over 143 MPH (with a passenger). Some of the others were with 2 women (the monkey was 72 years old).
They don't allow passengers now. They were real sidecars in those days instead of just a third wheel.

One year they drove that outfit to the Griffith Park Rally. And I had an opportunity to drive it. Do you know what happened to Skip and Pam?? I think I recall being told that Skip had passed away. If I remember right, he did have some sort of heart problem.

I know nothing about side cars. I do know that they need to be mounted to the motorcycle correctly, and may need special linkage. I will not be carrying passengers, just stuff. so Adding weight will not get in the way. I have ridden solo bikes for 50 years. Would like to be able to take more things with me. If it sells before I get there I understand.
Where would I look for linkage to put it on my bike?
