The sidecar was designed with three things in mind:
  1. it had to be safe
     
  2. it had to be practical
     
  3. ... and it had to look good!
Through innovative design, careful attention to detail and access to experienced professionals, the sidecar has achieved all of these requirements.

The completed motorcycle sidecar system has been thoroughly tested in all conditions and situations resulting in full accreditation and registration through Queensland Transport. The sidecar has performed to all expectations of safety, comfort and enjoyment. Insurance conditions and requirements have been met and full business and liability insurance is in place.

As mentioned earlier, the sidecar is perfect for everyone and anyone. We are well equipped to cater for any special needs.
