I am in need of some sidecar mounts to connect an Escort sidecar to a 1984 Goldwing GL1200. I have a set of universal sidecar mounts that I used on another bike that I would be willing to trade if necessary. Any help is appreciated.

It looks like the only issue will be the bottom rear mount. There  may be a modification needed to the floorboard mount to attach the bottom rear mount. I am still open to suggestions. Anyone?

 Regards,

 Les

Thanks Barry, I have been looking at those photos for the last few days, I just don't have the machinery or tools to make it happen other than drilling that hole in the floorboard mount. I'm sure that sidecar mount exists I just need to find it.

You can buy those mounts from motorvation. Look around their web site and you will find a price list. Motorvation uses eye nuts and Champion use heim joints so I'm not sure if they can sell you anything. I would assume tomorrow DMC or Lonnie will respond with ideas.

We have every thing you will need for this.
The bike side mounts run $675
Unlike most other mounts for your bike on the market, Our mounts do not place the lower rear mount higher on the frame then the lower front mount. When the lower rear mount is higher on the frame then the lower front mout when you adjust your lean out to fix a pull you end up changing the tow setting in the wrong dirrection making it very hard to find the sweet spot on the alignment.

 Thanks for the response Jay, unfortunately that price is out of my grasp. I now realize that I only need the bottom rear mount so that is what I am putting the focus on at this point. I will also be looking to buy a seat cover so that would be another thing I need a price on. It is a Champion Escort, the same as my avatar.

 Regards,

Les
