Going back many years, but I built a Triumph Trident with a 'factory' frame which had no number. Getting registered as a new road bike was no great problem but the frame number - which I devised and included my initials - had to be stamped into the metal of the frame. A riveted on plate was not acceptable.

Probably bears no relevance to today's regulations in South Africa.  ::)

Any frame/chassis number has to be stamped into the metal of the main component, iow not the subframe.  A metalplate with the number is allowed, but only in addition to the frame-stamped number.

I see not all the sidecars are on the same side? Is there a rule  or can you fit it were you like it best?


They use the RH chair in mainland Europe etc, but Brits n Australia n maybe others use a LH chair.

I better get busy with the stamp set then, plus a plate perhaps?
What frame did you use, a Rob North race replica or something? My brother used to race a Trident Triton, sounded fabulous, my friend has a Rob North Rocket 3, it's pretty cool...
