    Welcome to the forum. I would think you could put a sidecar on a Whizzer. I have one made from a Grumman canoe on a 50 Schwinn with a 99cc Predator four stroke powering it. Works fine.

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Sidecars are cool. For many years a sidecar outfit was my sole mode of transport and I still miss owning and driving one.

    Welcome. Side car def be cool. Try typing in side car to google. I've seem a far amount of pictures of bicycles with side cars. I don't have a mob of my own, working on my first right now. I've ran into a few glitches. I should have it running by the weekend.


    .duh.

    For some reason bicycle sidecars are specifically forbidden here in New Zealand. I never have been able to find out the reason why, but the Transport Act actually names them as a vehicle forbidden to be used on NZ roads.
    Small motorcycles, scooters and mopeds can have them though, - go figure?

    Maybe when the rule was made they were thinking in terms of pedal powered bicycles with a Watsonian type of sidecar. In other words, "...slow, in the way, hazard, ban them." And then the same people will talk earnestly about the need to go green, use less fossil fuel, be innovative "as we move into a better future".

    I think most people have a certain narrow kind of mindset regarding bicycles. That's one of the good things about this forum in that it helps to broaden perspective, inform, educate all the while having fun.
