I made those, but I don't make them for sale. I teach sidecar classes and am trying to get a tour company off the ground and I made them for the business http://adventuresidecar.com/training06/training06.htm
. I have some photos of the construction process up here:
Sidecars are more difficult to build, at least to build so they drive correctly and safely, than one might expect. I haven't seen any plans out there, either. I have been riding sidecars fo years and have built or set up a few for myself and it is always a fussy job with opportunities for a "learning experience"
Dauntless Motors makes sidecars and sells mounting kits for the KLR. http://www.dauntlessmotors.com/Sidec...rtsidecars.htm
I have used them in the past and found them to be top notch. I have one of the Dauntless mounting kits on the blue KLR and like it. Dauntless is making a platform type sidecar for the KLR(and other duals port bikes), similar to mine but nicer and with more ground clearance. I don't know if they have them in production yet. They also have the Sputnik, a lightweight Russian sidecar, more conventional in appearance. I posted a photo of one on a KLR in the ALBUM section. I had a Sputnik on my old Triumph Tiger and loved it
I think you can get a set up from Dauntless for around $2500 for the sidecar(more with options) and about $1000 for the mounts. You would have to talk to them for real prices, this is just my recollection from conversations with the owner.
This is a Ural platform sidecar on a KLR. Dauntless is the dealer for them but I don't think they have any in stock
