    The business of attaching a sidecar to a bike that was never specifically designed for a sidecar is a complex undertaking. I started a sidecar project with the intention of building a sidecar and attaching it to my 2006 Honda VLX600...

    Scott-E replied to the thread WJ V or Vindicator?.
    I found a WJ4 a couple of months ago but the light pods and one of the lenses were broken. He wanted $75. If it was perfect I would have taken it. I offered $25 but he refused to come off his original asking price. I walked away because...

    I never thought about utilizing a windshield mounting hole. I'll have to look into that.

    That does look really nice! As for the turn signals, I would make a simple bracket that attaches the turn signal light to the top windshield mounding screws. You could use two of those small LED turn signal lights (one on each side) so...

    Weather reached 60 degrees today. Instead of taking a ride, I got a wild hair and mounted my Vindicator to the bike. I think I like the look of this one better even though I do not have front turn signals.

    I have a similar setup for my BMW K100RS. I have posted photos on this site perhaps you can get a better idea of the hook up. It is labor intensive and as you noted no specific instructions. The lower heim joints with the tubes, attach...

    Hey guys, I'm attempting to install a Terraplane on my '03 Triumph Speedmaster. To make it a "simple" bolt up, I spent a massive wad of cash on a bike-specific setup from DMC Sidecars, which includes 2 mounting plates for the sidecar, a...

    Colder weather in store for us this weekend so I doubt I'll do any riding. I may fit the Vindicator on for kicks and see how it looks in comparison.

    Thanks Brian, I feel late to the party though. I should have installed this fairing years ago and I also should have joined the forum years ago as well!

    New winter-project.... I will install a WJ V instead of the IV on my bike. Have just ordered some parts at Carol‘s online shop. Fairing will be painted all black with silver decals, the holes for lower mounting I want to close. Dieter

    Thanks for the info. My mirror mount from the hand controls so dont know how limiting that would be for mounting. I also remove my hands a lot more than i should, choke is mounted on the left side of motor, petcock, cigarette...

    I use a set of the later model: blue logo markings rather than gold, on my GoldWings and there is plenty of room for the master cylinders for both the brake and the clutch. They do stay open so getting your hand in and out is not a...
