    Project 1955 Tilbrook RHD sidecar

    I just bought my next sidecar project - a 1000km road trip to pick up this week end. Chairs are going for big prices in Oz now so I couldn't resist. It may end up being far too light a design for my Rocket but if so It will find a home. Australian made 1955 Tilbrook RHD Tilbrook was an Aussie...

    Sidecar tug build

    Might as well post a thread to start sharing progress. The Ural tub is from the mid 60's and needs attention everywhere. Seat, wiring and suspension are trashed. Need to deal with rust and really old paint. So far I've ordered a DMC sidecar fitment kit to save some time on mounting. Also...

    new to me '09 in TX, sidecar build

    I just picked up an '09 with only 6400 miles. Didn't have much history on it. Is it a classic? GT? Dunno. First up is handlebars then mods to put an old Ural tub on it for dog hauling.

    Sidecar memories

    A new member introduced himself describing his sidecar rig and that made me think back to the sidecar my Dad had. I don't want to take away from @IRS4 tread so I'll start this one. Back in the late '70s / early '80s my Mom, for some reason became afraid of riding pillion with Dad. Not sure...

    Rocket sidecar build

    Hi Guys For your amusement I am posting some pics of my Rocket sidecar build here. I started last week with building a sub frame that the car will mount to. The sidecar is one that I built 3 years ago, and is currently attached to my 2002 Moto Guzzi EV. First thing I had to do was make a new...

    Rocket sidecar duty

    Just picked up a 2011 R3 to be the replacement tug for a sidecar camper set up. Will be replacing a well traveled worn out vstrom1000. The objective is not speed but torque and reliability. Am pushing a lot of air with the broad flat front end. Any recommended sources for R3 aftermarket parts...

    Sidecar Driver Question

    Hi, am a six year sidecar driver looking for a stronger bike to push my camper sidecar rig around. The current tug, a Vstrom1000 is geared down but is being pushed to its limit. Am seriously considering a Rocket 3 for this use. Any one have experience or comments on using an R3 as a sidecar...

    Rocket sidecar cam

    Have been posting the odd video made from the sidecar on my 2010 Roadster. Nothing too exciting, just vids as I'm traveling. Not going hard, just doing what the Rocket does well....eating miles easily. Some from other places might like to see some Australian scenery and roads etc. There's a few...

    2005 Rocket 3 with DMC SIdecar

    Howdy all? I have just bought a nice 2005 R3 with 9100 miles on the clock. It is in excellent condition. At least that's what I think. Aesthetically it is a 10 out of 10. Mechanically speaking, it should be fine except I have heard some weird noises when I first rode it home. The noises would...

    Sidecars in Oz.

    G'day We recently bought a 2010 Roadster and want to have a sidecar fitted. Has anyone here in OZ done this to their Rocket? We have a home made job on my old BMW K100 but the Rocket is going to require a little more serious gear. Are there any members who have done this? Seems like there are...

    sidecar owners - help

    Those of you who have installed a sidecar to your rocket, did you change the triple trees for less trail? I've mounted a Champion Escort to my Rocket and find the steering extremely stiff! I have located a set of 5 degree raked trees that will reduce the trail from the 5.8" of a stock bike to...
