Re: My friend Scott K in CO (city on the side)

Thanks to all who offered kind words of encouragement and support! I have great aspirations for this business model. I have been to Paris (Retro Tours) and Barcelona (Brightside) in my planning phase and met personally with the kind operators who were more than happy to share their experiences, chal...

Re: My friend Scott K in CO (city on the side)

My son took his own life on April 3, 2016. He was my only child. He was 20 years old. His name was Nicholas. I have been working for the same company for 30 years. Through this loss I have learned a lot about myself and how I need to move forward with my life. Thus, the idea of City on the Side star...

Re: Installation of Windshield Wiper(s)???

Thanks for all the replies folks, I do appreciate your input. Perhaps I should have provided more info but I was simply "legally" frustrated when I started this thread. The fact of the matter is that I am about ready to launch City on the Side (http://www.cityontheside.com) sidecar motorcy...

Installation of Windshield Wiper(s)???

Greetings all, I am not going to even try to get into the reasoning behind my question, it would take me way too long to try to explain. Does anyone out there foresee any way to install windshield wiper (or wipers) on the rider windshield? Please bear with me as I know this sounds insane, but there ...

There are 3 in NA and 13 throughout the rest of the world. Hav...

Re: City on the Side - An Exhilarating Sidecar Experience

It's a fun and energetic post, but in this forum, it almost seems like you're selling ice cubes to Eskimos! I get it, we are all sidecar riders, nothing special to us. However, 99.9% of the population has never ridden in one, There might be a small chance that somebody knows somebody in Denver, a &...

Re: Ped slicer

If you want to do it really nice, go to your local sign shop, not FedEx, but a real sign shop and they will be able to custom cut the letters for you for the perfect size for the space you have available. They can even cut them to the exact curvature of your ped slicer. If they are a larger one I am...

Re: Harness Style Seatbelt for Chair

This is for a ride around the block sort of thing, not a road trip, is that correct? I think a gocart seat belt, like Rivers suggested, would work. All you need is something to keep your passenger sitting upright for a short ride so I don't think a rollbar is necessary, just temporarily secure the ...

Re: Are the "sidecars" the same on all models?

That's what I thought, I have never seen too many side by side but I thought they were all the same, thanks for clearing that up!

Harness Style Seatbelt for Chair

Good morning everyone, I was approached by a friend yesterday who told me a story which broke my heart and I want to help make a difference somebody's life. On July 20, 2012, a mass shooting occurred inside a Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, close to where I live. 12...

Are the "sidecars" the same on all models?

Just wondering, are they all the same size, shape and dimensions on let's say all 2016 models? I thought I read somewhere that the M90 is different but GU, Patrol and cT's are the same. Thanks in advance!
