Strewth, that'd be some sidecar. Something straight out of James Bond

Further to the James Bond theme:
1) If you remember a James Bond film where the sidecar detached from a Kawasaki 900 - the sidecar was built by George Healey.
2) If you watch the latest James Bond film - Spectre - during the scene in Q's workshop you see a Norton Commando (new type) in the background - assembled by my son Rob.

It's actually a limited edition norton dominator ss in spectre, not a commando. One of a limited run of 200 worldwide.

You reminded me of the Norton Dominator 88 that I once had, paid £60 for it.

I think put something fast inside it take it to Bonneville salt flats would be the way forward.
