C10 side car adaption

Has anyone considered putting a side car on a C10? Any experience with side cars?
I'm open to thoughts.

I'm sure it has been done, but if it were me, I'd choose a bike with more modern brakes that could handle the extra weight.

After a serious bike accident back in 03, someone from this group visited me on one.  He was from north NJ.  Can't remember his name or handle, unfortunately.  (In my defense, I was on a LOT of prescription pain killers at the time - But I really appreciated the visit!)  It had modified front suspension to help with the steering, and upgraded brakes as well. 

The front end was something along the lines of this:

Would/could the pic be reversed,most American rigs are mounted on the right side/Europe etc. on the left.As long as you have a frame you can mount a sidecar,that frontend is called a leading link.Very good looking rig. I have a BMW R100/7 w/a Velorex 562L with the stock R bike brakes,never had a problem.  The Wizard

The ZRX photo has vehicles with what looks like euro license plates, side car on opposite side than it would be in the states.

It probably is a car tire,no leaning with a hack.But very often I have purposely raised the sidecar up in the air.Its totally different but fun.   The Wizard
