You don't see to many side cars on the road these days.
I'd keep it slow.
Great minds think alike ,these are the exact thoughts I had ,see it's a bit of a moral delemma for me ,on one hand I'm happy to build it for him but on the other hand I'm not going to build a kit to see him hurt or kill himself on .
He is a younger bloke too so IMHO pushes things a bit hard at times

Says he will use it for transporting stuff and no passengers but can I really trust that he won't

Hmm think I'll have to mull this one over a bit

If any members have riden a motorised Sidecart let me know how stable they really are

Oh and cheers for your imput Theon
