Ive just hurt 2nd gear in my XR600 at QVMX on the weekend so dont think it will be any good as a side car.Will stick with my plan of using a road bike as a base,one will turn up at the right price sooner or later.There was no side cars at QVMX but it was only a practice weekend,I was hoping to have a ride or swing on one.

We were over at Harrisville having an inter-club challenge that QVMX was invited to but they decided to do the practise thing instead.
We had 5 sidecars out as a few guys had to work and one has a hurt back and so on, saving themselves up for the titles in June.
You don't want anything too heavy though plenty of Honda 4s and GSXs & Kwaka9s have done the deal before. Twins produce the best power for the job.

Ive just had my 16 year old nephew move in with me and he is really excited to swing for me,is he old enough?
We have finally finished 2 bikes,taken way longer than expected,we will be coming to motofest qmp,will the side cars be there?
Really keen to have a look,the shed clean and ready for a new project,hoping to build it over the hot summer months and have it ready to hit the rack when the weather cools.
Still haven't found the donor bike but ready to get stuck in now the solos are done.

I forgot to mention I have 2 engine choices,I bought an mc16 nsr250 that came with a spare engine but I think that would be too small?
Also I've picked up an early 90s cr500 engine,Is this too late or classed as a carry over?

This is a difficult question.  Anyone that says it is ok hasn't got it right.  There are no follow on models for any bikes in Pre 90 (because no one has asked MA).  If the follow on model isn't in the MOMS it isn't approved.

However a motor may be different.  Find out exactly what year it is and compare the parts (engine parts) on something like partzilla to the 1989 motor.  Then if you think they are the same email MA requesting it be approved as follow on parts.  Don't expect the commission to do he research for you.
