Watsonian keep Harley-Davidson on side

Harley-Davidson dropped sidecars from their range in 2011, but the all-American bikes are still a popular choice for Watsonian’s customers.

The latest outfit to roll out of the British sidecar company’s Cotswolds factory pairs their GP700 with an Electra Glide Ultra Classic.

“Harleys have been one of the top three choices with our customers for the past 20 years.” says Watsonian Managing Director Ben Matthews. “Like Triumph’s modern classic range and Royal Enfield – the other most popular brands – they have a timeless appeal that complements our sidecars, torquey engines for pulling power and their traditional tubular steel frames make fitting straightforward”

Designed for long distance touring comfort, the Ultra Classic is the perfect partner for the Watsonian GP700, with its wide bench seat, generous leg room and deep screen. The lockable boot provides additional luggage space and somwhere to store helmets, etc securely when parked.

As standard the sidecar comes with a black gelcoat finish, but custom-match painting, as shown here, is available as an optional extra. Customers can also choose between a classic 16″ spoke wheel or a 10″ cast alloy.

Made in the UK to order, prices for the GP700 start at £6,895- (including VAT) and the Electra Glide fitting kit sells for £575-.
