Mounting a sidecar to the Rebel?
Has anybody thought about mounting a sidecar to the rebel?
I had- but only theoretically.
So I had done a little research about this topic and concluded:
it is a lot of work, costs and development. After all that, you have to do a lot of paperwork, show the outcome to the technical authority of the state or country and they let it pass- or not.
So far as I know, you have at least to change the forks as shown in the pics, the tires (we need tires like a car because we need the same footprint on the road and no more our semicircle tire profile), install a proper brake to the sidecar and so on.
Last but not least: we have to learn riding again! Thrust forward, braking, cornering and a lot more is a huge difference to riding a solo bike.
