Star treatment: Watsonian's Grand Prix sidecar now available for BSA

1 of 3

Traditional sidecar manufacturer Watsonian have listened to riders and have adapted the Grand Prix sidecar to fit the BSA Gold Star retro motorbike

“We’ve received a lot of enquiries about fitting sidecars to the new BSA Gold Star and we managed to obtain one of the first production bikes so we could develop a kit,” said Watsonian MD Ben Matthews.

“With its torquey engine and traditional steel tubular frame, we could see straight away that it would be well suited to sidecar work. And its authentic styling made it a perfect match for our Grand Prix sidecar.”

The Grand Prix has a GRP body that retains the octagonal nose and aluminium beading first seen on the Watsonian Sports sidecar of 1930. It sits in a steel perimeter frame, which is connected to the motorcycle with four arms, carefully positioned for a secure fit and stable handling.

The passenger sits in an upholstered bucket seat, protected from the elements by a Lexan screen and cushioned from the road by hydraulic suspension. Sidecars are available with colour-matched paint and other accessories such as auxiliary spotlights to suit the customer’s specific requirements. 

The BSA Gold star fitting kit costs £495 including VAT and prices for the Grand Prix sidecar start at £7195.
