Additional Information:


They manufactured the finest sidecars and cargo trailers for motorcycles you can buy from any source. They also specialized in designing individual lines of products uniquely styled for different aspects of the marketplace. Their Grand National trailer line is perfect for the Harley Davidson owner because of the painstaking attention to detail in matching the Harley style. This line of trailer fulfills all of the styling requirements to match the unique look of the great American motorcycle. This same principle applies to the Wing Liner trailer which matches the modern touring look of the Honda GL1500, as well as the Back Pack Royale carrying the theme of the earlier more traditional look of the Japanese touring bike. They took the same approach with their lines of sidecars. The SPYDER sidecar offers you the choice of many different fender and tail light combinations custom designed to match your motorcycle. Motorvation provided the specific mounting hardware required for your motorcycle frame (they did not use the one size frame clamp fits all approach). Their Formula II and Roadster Royale sidecars provided room for two people. These models combine state of the art touring technology, and the smoothest most comfortable ride of any sidecar.

History Behind Motorvation Sibley, IA

After 15 years of manufacturing in Southern California, they moved the entire operation to Sibley, Iowa. Sibley is in the north west corner of the state,18 miles south of Worthington, MN and 60 miles east of Sioux Falls, SD. Having moved here, they have acquired the best collection of master craftsmen that we have ever had. Their painter, produced the finest show quality paint jobs in our industry. Gary Greene, with his 25 years of sidecar installations, could either install your sidecar at the facility, or answer any technical questions you might have while you are installing it at home (they also had photo mount sheets and videos showing how to install your sidecar). They also could provide a trailer hitch for most any motorcycle. For the best in customer relations and helpful follow through, all you needed to do was ask for any of their sales and service representative. They were unique in as much as they produced the vast majority of the product components in-house utilizing their complete machine shop, welding shop, upholstery department, crating shop along with assembly and service. The crew there showed what the made in the U.S.A. small town, mid-western quality work ethic can produce.
