I've a life long dream of getting a flat head HD with a side car either an olive drab WLA or a civilian WL. I'm a complete newbie and have been surfing around trying to learn what I can. I don't have the bucks for what they are going for on ebay fully restored. It seems possible to buy the bike and then add a sidecar. Is that a good plan? Good books to read before parting with cash? Where to look for a WL or WLA? Where to look for a real HD side car?
Good part is I'm very handy with tools.
Thanks in advance,

Konrad,Welcome to the forum. The classifieds here are a good place to look for a used sidecar. You can also try the "Unclassieds" at Sidecar Talk http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/SCTThe Cycle Trader site is also pretty good and occassionaly you find something on eBay. Good Luck!

In Seattle you have Liberty Sidecar who makes a great chair for Harleys. Don't know how close this is to what you are looking for.Liberty: http://www.libertysidecars.com/

Welcome from Ky
One of the unfinished projects in my garage is a 1931 Harley chair, it is all orginal and unrestored. The mounts and bars are all in place, the door works,it is a little rough. I had a '36 flat that I was going to restore but sold it some time ago. I might part with it too many bikes and not enough time.
