Sidecar value and fitting please?

I have found
what is said to be
a Big Twin
sidecar body and chassis.
Built during WW2.

On a scale of
1 to 4
where 4 is high
and 1 is a pile of junk.
It's a 2.

Can anyone give me an idea
of it's value
in their country please?

Also, can anyone give me
an idea
of the problems involved
in fitting it to
a WLC
without mutilating the
sidecar chassis.
Or the WLC.

Kind Regards, Delta Mike.

There is no way. Even if you managed to hook it on someway the bike wouldn't have enough power to pull it.

Hey Chris, whatever happened
to good old American cando.

My WLC pulls a very heavy military sidecar chassis
made by BSA (I think).

With a heavy Krad 2 repro body
by Dnieper.

The Ruskies used a similar combo
Harley with repro Krad 2 and chassis
to throw Nazi scum
back to Berlin.
They often ran 3 up
carrying battle and survival equipment for those three guys.

Us Europeans cando with
very modest power to weight ratios.

Kind Regards, Delta Mike.
