you might want to go to sidecar.com, there you can find all the info you need on sidecars. but unless you have been riding sidecars it's not just cut and dry build a car and attach it.

sidecars are a lot of fun and not your everyday set up but they can be complicated to set up. I just would hate to see you shy away from them because you didn't get the proper help to set up your first rig. I would strongly suggest buying a used car and getting the correct attaching hardware for your first rig. then down the road look at building something. there is so much to learn and get used to when first moving from 2 wheels to a sidecar
