Who makes this rig and would it be a good match for a 1977 Honda CB750A?
Thanks

A 750 would carry it but I'd recommend no continued freeway speeds.

Thank you. Here's what I want to put it on. The GL is what I ride now.

Check th suspension on the sidecar. The torsion springs go through a square hole in the frame. If (when) they fail you can lose swingarm and all. Some have replaced them with modified VW bug parts. Some have turned it into a rigid suspension but make sure the mounting system is up to the task! In fact if it has the early mounts It is good to change them out anyhow. We have converted these sidecars to a whole different 'real' torsion bar suspension system but one must must wonder if the cost vs value is worth it.

We do make bike specific mounts for the Honda CB 750A which are different then the standard 750 mounts, This as Claude point out has the torsion bar suspension which has issues but will work if maintained. The lower attachment points if they use a clamp that clamps over a 5/8 inch ball that is tightened with a 5/16 bolt (1/2 inch wrench) should be changed out as they do fail. You can still get windshields for this sidecar from www.bikescreen.com
My sister in law has a CB 750A while a bit slow she has ridden it all over, I would not worry about running it on the freeway and going any where in the country with it provided the bike is in good shape as it is getting up there in years.

Thank you. I've been all over Alberta & British Columbia on my 78' CB750A and it was fine. Just a gas pig and don't be in a hurry.
