This may be a dumb question but can sidecars be put on any motorcycle? I have an old 1972 Honda CB450 and I want to put a sidecar on it. Is that something that could be possible?

thanks! I think I found what I needed.

While I am at it...does anyone know of a good place to find parts for a 72 cb450? I want to completely revamp the whole bike

It should probably be pointed out that adding a sidecar to your bike is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! Bikes are designed to lean, a sidecar prevents this and will make steering the bike precarious. If you turn toward the sidecar the bike will have a tendency to roll over and if you turn away from the sidecar the rear tire will lose traction making your bike very unstable in turns. You will also have significantly impaired braking performance thanks to the extra weight that is nowhere close to being centered on the bike.
