Hi Artur, All pre-war BSA sidecar chassis were of "A"frame construction NOT square or oblong. Also BSA sidecar chassis were fitted with  fittings that fitted straight into the tapers/fittings on the bike, so no extra fittings were required. Also to the best of my knowledge BSA sidecars were all steel bodied, although I have come across BSA sidecars that have been re-skinned in aluminium because the steel has rotted away. The shape of your sidecar is similar to a pre-war BSA sidecar but the front of the passenger compartment would be a regular curve if it was a BSA and not pointed. Sorry if this is bad news. Regards Alan

Dear Alan
Thank you for your opinion. I agree that BSA chassis was in "A" frame . My BSA left (based on factory records) without sidecar. So sidecar was fitted to bike lately or price for this sidecar was less than factory sidecar dn was sold by dealer to customer.

Stay safe for All.
Best regards Artur
