Re: HT sidecar combo

Thanks for the pic Dave. Mine seems to have a different mounting on the frame, two lugs that look like tank mounting points... you can see them on this photo.

The plug question... it seems a very light chair, though obviously a body (or bag of sand if nobody will come along!) will add to the load on the engine, so should I run a hotter plug?

Funnily enough, Dave, I was just on that very site... thanks for the pointers. So... a rarity, excellent, though I also like the fact the bike has been used for its purpose, and the scars add to the appeal and character. I was thinking should I get the sidecar damage repaired, but I may just leave i...

Re: HT sidecar combo

Well, just done a bit of searching on the net and these are showing a 1956 HT engine in a '56 HS frame... and I assume the SC suffix on the frame stands for "sidecar"?

I have to insure the bike, so what sort of value should I put on it?

So this one I have won't be for competition use then! Maybe some gentle green laning and riding to work in the snow ;o)

I see what you mean about the frame. have just had a look at some images of the HT one, and it slopes much more doesn't it, and ends at the top of the mounting for the rear shocks. I would imagine it's a lot lighter too.

The horizontal lugs between tank and saddle would be for mounting the road seat then I take it, and they wouldn't be found on a trials frame?

Hi Adrie,

Thanks for the info. What would the engine/frame number range be for the HS or HT, or is there a specific prefix or suffix to show?
