    There should be a serial number stamped on top of one of the cross tubes.

    I've checked and can not see any numbers anywhere

    does anyone have a parts manual for this sidecar - copys will do anything to help in finding what the parts I need look like

    even pictures of your own frame will help - do not need pictures of a body thanks

    I have a 1918-1926 parts book. Your frame appears to be earlier than that.

    It could very well be Indian. As I said it didn't match any thing in the H-D catalogue.

    I am not sure chris but I think if posted under indian other I had an idea it was indian

    maybe in future I will have to put in the thread the make and model of the item in question as not to confuse anyone who loves to post just to see their thoughts in writing

    Sure, thats it. I go dig up a parts manual, scan it, upload it to photobucket and post it here just to see my thought s writing. I think NOT! I tried to help. If that is too deep for you to understand that I am sorry.

    akahawg,
    PM me, I have a '28 Indian sidecar catalog that shows a very similar frame for 301 and 401. The scan is too large to post here.
