Hi all
Has anyone tried a sidecar with an Inazuma? 😎

If you are going to fit a sidecar then you are going to have to use some serious reduction in gearing.

Thanks, yes the sidecar company I’ve spoken to thinks it’s a first.
Cutting away pristine bodywork is going to hurt too - it’s quite a commitment and without some encouraging experience I may decide to buy a built combo too.  Maybe a Royal Enfield 500, which will remind of my old B31.  Have yet to really find out what my bike can do solo!

I'll confess to being fascinated by sidecars, but if I got serious, I'd want considerably more than the 24 bhp of the Inazuma. It'd probably want rather better brakes too  :002:

Thanks, I’m looking forward to finding an entry-level combination and now believe my Inazuma is not the way to go - I’ll be keeping her solo.
Appreciate recommendations for a 3 wheeled addition to the garage…?

Triumph Bonneville maybe ? Needs to be over 500cc, I would think

If you hear of an affordable Triumph I would love it, a Deauville would be cheaper, though maybe a 500 Bullet would help keep me out of trouble - sat here waiting for delivery of the Sidecar Guide book… will hopefully steer me right??!!! 🤞🙄👍
