Watsonian Kenilworth Sidecar
« on: 25 October, 2021, 09:00:51 »
Good morning to all here, I have just registered after just buying my first BSA A50 Star 1964 Registered which when first bought
was bought as a Combination Outfit fitted with a Watsonian Sidecar from Kings in Wolverhampton (after exstensive research on this). Now when I bought the BSA A50 the sidecar was missing (the previous owner had it but took it off and sold it, idiot for 100, 7 years ago !) Luckily he had photos of it but could not remember which model it was other than it was a Watsonian, so again after much research I managed to 1: Find the Model which was a Kenilworth Double Adult. 2: It had the SV Chassis and 3:
Managed to find one for sale which was advertised as a 1950s Sidecar (seller not knowing what he had) as it still had the Original Watsonian Plaque on it which could be dated as being a 1964 (the letter R on the Plaque) needless to say I jumped on the advert and bought it as it was all complete/original and exactly what I wanted. Now I have been restoring the chassis and sidecar which is almost ready to be fitted But, again after reseach and containg Watsonian who are now Watsonian and Squire and still in business I am still none the wiser on how to Fit it to my BSA A50 Star. Watsonian said they will come back to me after sending them many many photos and details but alas still no reply/answer, hence time to join you guys here to see if anybody out there has any answers please? I will attach some photos asap of what I have and the parts/tubing (on my other laptop) to see if all parts are there (I believe they are) and go from there, many thanks in adavance as doing this also for my father who back in the day has a Gold Flash in the 60s with many a story he has told me, Regards John

Welcome to the Forum and don't forget to join the BSAOC and find all the help you will need to fit your sidecar. There are Branches all over the country so there may be one near you.  There is a sidecar section on the Forum just a bit lower down the page.  Riding a combination is not like anything you have ridden before so enjoy the new experience when you have fitted it.
