As sidecar outfit driver for over 40 years---SilverWing drive line not designed for extra strain sidecar brings: Min. mods SilverWing would need to pull a chair:

20% reduction in overall gearing.....but how?

modified fork trail---springs? Rear, too

Steering dampener

Then how does the air coming off the chair hit you?

Lifting the sidecar wheel is the usual party piece of combo riders. But what's the point of thinking I'd like one of those unless you're prepared to butcher the bodywork of your Silver Wing to attatch the sidecar. If you were serious you'd also fit replacement square shouldered tyres to the Silver Wing, a steering damper, and ultimately replace the telescopic forks with a set of specially made leading link forks.

Go over to Germany and you'll occasionally see really expensive sidecar outfits fitted with hub-centre steering.

Just bolting a colour matched sidecar to a tele forked Silver Wing on normal tyres for three wheeled stability is just playing at it in sidecar terms. Then there's a serious learning curve, cornering on a sidecar outfit requires a different technique on left and right corners.

In my MZ riding years, a lot of Brit MZ enthusiasts would have loved to have had the chance to buy the MZ ES 250 Trophy, TS250 Supa 5, or ETZ 250 bikes fitted with really good the metal Elastik sidecar of which Mr Grinsel often speaks. But the UK MZ importer didn't bring them in as the sidecars were on the right. Offering only a left hand fit ugly fibre glass sidecar no one really wanted.

Fairly sure there is a line or two in the owners handbook which states that the SilverWing is NOT designed to be fitted with a sidecar
