With these great looking 1940-53 sidecar bodies from Classicar Restoration Ltd in New Zealand + the other options (I think there's at least one or two US makers as well as one in Denmark, and I wouldn't be surprised to hear of more somewhere), there's really no excuse for leaving the family behind when you go for a ride on your late model Indian.
Alan Bowden of Classicar is well versed in metalworking tecniques as his main line is restoration of some pretty fancy cars for clients all over the world. So far he is only making the bodies for the Indian sidecars, but if there's enough interest, fenders and frames can also be made.
Besides cars, Classicar also restores motorcycles
- like this nice 1940 Chief.
