Hello & welcome... my name is Keith and I have created this website to share my passion for the weird and wonderful world of sidecar riding in South Africa.
If you have found your way here perhaps you are as enthralled by the idea of a sidecar and it's many unique applications as I was many years ago.
Please feel free to browse this site, information can be found here of how I first got into sidecars, my top 10 reasons to own a sidecar, as well as answers to some of the many questions you may have, there are also some fun riding videos I posted on Youtube over the years.
Regarding the sidecars I build, over the past 12 years I have built and test ridden many sidecars, the culmination of which is the rig you see in the photos above, it is the one I am most proud of for its sheer simplicity, strength and riding pleasure, I felt I needed to give it a name so I called it the Smiling Wind (SW) sidecar.
This particular outfit has been designed to fit the BMW GS range of motorcycle, these bikes are powerful and strong and proven to be good pullers of sidecars worldwide, it can be dismounted in a few minutes simply by loosening three bolts, then your bike is back to a solo again.
In producing a custom built SW sidecar, I work from a workshop at home and each completed sidecar is put together myself by hand and then test ridden.
Please contact me for pricing. Individual components can also be purchased to make up your own rig. Should you like me to build you a complete sidecar I ask for a 50% deposit to begin your build and delivery is 4-6 weeks. I am based in Sedgefield on the Garden Route.
I hope you enjoy this website.
Best wishes. K
