    I know that you would appreciate this because of your bobber, and it being based on a DongFang (they all use the exact same engine), but it seems quite expensive, and not as cool-looking as your bobber, but I know you like sidecars.

    It comes down to about $1700 for the sidecar--if that is worth it to you? The bike is probably so-so, but at least the engine is known thanks to the bobbers.

    Ummmm yep.DMC wants that just for the mount and side car frame kit.The side car frame kit still has to be welded together, and there is no sidecar body.I added it up, and it was going to be about $5-6000 for a side car set up for my V Star.Used,I can't find them often, and they still sell for $2-3000.

    I was not aware of prices for these things!? They do sell the sidecars through saferwholesale by themselves, but I can see your point now buying the package.

    The prices seem a bit crazy to me,but I don't know the tech behind make a side car rig handle properly.I know there's a lot to setting one up and making sure everything is lined up properly for good steering.

    I thought about putting a sidecar on my DF but it is under powered as a solo so would really be slow with a sidecar attached.
