The Cozy Sidecar

June 10th, 2008 Posted in Cozy

Cozy Sidecar (sometimes referred to as Cozi, Cosy)

If you have a scooter or light motorcycle (upper limit about 400 lbs / 35 horsepower — more for touring, less for sport driving) then the Cozy Sidecar made in India (which is now the world’s leader in scooter and light motorcycle production) may be just what you are looking for. Because the Cozy line of sidecars is optimized for scooter and light motorcycle attachment they have the following characteristics:

  • Lighter weight and smaller size sidecars suitable for scooter and light motorcycle attachment
  • No need to attempt to modify the motor scooter’s or cycle’s braking system as there is no separate sidecar brake needed for a light sidecar operating at moderate speeds.
  • No need to remove the motorcycle or scooter center or side stand, thus allowing easy switching between solo and sidecar riding.
  • Attachment specifically designed for frameless monocoque scooters such as the Vespa (some drilling required)

Cozy sidecars are still in production and exported out of India by several distributors

Cozy’s Products:

The current Cozy motorcycle mount is designed to bolt to the front of a single cylinder motorcycle engine mount in classic single and twin down tube frames and to the foot peg mount. Cozy sidecars are domestically attached in India to many imported and domestically produced motorcycles but experienced in sidecar mounting, the fabrication or modification of brackets, and in some cases the brazing or welding of attachment points to the motorcycle frame by a qualified technician. See the current Cozy sidecar mounting for an Enfield Bullet motorcycle

Royal Enfield Enfield of India motorcycles require a special mounting kit to install a Cozy sidecar. Cozy sidecars will fit Royal Enfields with this mounting kit.

  • Because motorcycles with non-circular (oval or square) tubular frames or frames constructed from aluminum extrusions / weldments are generally higher performance and weight machines, and Cozy sidecars are specifically designed for lower performance and lighter weight motorcycles and scooters, mounting kits will generally not be available.
  • Mounting kits for round tube frame motorcycles are under development and should be available 15 February 2000. These kits will fit frame tubing from 36 mm (1.4 inch) OD to 14 mm (0.55 inch) OD. These will kits will be similar to the tubular frame scooter kits in that these will mount a sub-frame with flange to your motorcycle. These kits will require at least three places (four is better) where you can bolt a 50 mm ( 2 inch) wide clamp strap around a frame member. No welding, frame drilling or special tools will be required.
  • Zipper fit mounting for Vespa and derivatives (Bajaj and LML) available now! The Cozy monocoque (Vespa style) scooter mounting system consists of flat steel plates which attaches to the underside of the scooter body with a dozen or so small steel bolts through the floor and was specifically developed for the Vespa and its derivatives such as the Bajaj, LML and SIL produced in India. This mount also fits the Lambretta and derivative scooters with a single central tube frame with flat floor. This unit has a flange onto which a single cantilever arm bolts which connects and positions the sidecar to the scooter. This is a more-or-less universal system for this type of scooter. If this system will stand up to Indian roads, it will stand up to anything. See the Cozy sidecar mounting for a monocoque (Vespa type) scooter
  • A special universal attachment bracket is being developed for those tubular frame scooters which are not suited for the above through-the-floor monocoque (Vespa) mounting system.
    Features of this mount are:

    • Belly pan / skid plate is retained to protect the gas tank and keep dirt away from the engine
      (requires notching the belly pan only on the side to which the sidecar mounts — no body panel cutting or drilling!)
    • Mounts directly to the 36 mm tube chassis on either side (but order correct hand sidecar!)
    • Installation requires only common hand tools such as 3/8 variable speed drill and 5/8 hole saw.
    • Struts are 5/8 X 18 threaded rods for maximum strength and rigidity
    • Sub-frame made from 2 X 2 X .110 square section steel tubing for strength and rigidity
    • Flange can be removed from sub-frame for cleanest possible appearance when sidecar is removed while still maintaining quick attach/detach capability and sidecar alignment
    • Mount either a scooter or motorcycle sidecar to the larger scooters
    • Check out the “George Clamp” for perimeter tubular frame scooters. (useful for single tube frames too)
  • The initial alignment specifications for Cozy sidecars for both motorcycles and motorscooters and mounting flange dimensions.

Cozy features:

  • A very attractive price (Be sure to note what is included by other manufacturers (such as finish sanding and paint) in their base price when comparison shopping!)
  • Rugged construction for the tough Indian road and driving conditions.
  • Your choice of right or left hand sidecar mounting. Several of the photographs below show left hand mounted sidecars which is standard in India (and England), but all units supplied will be right-hand mount (unless special ordered.)
  • Time and Indian road proven coil spring and hydraulic shock suspension
  • A quick change feature that allows mounting / dismounting of your Cozy sidecar in 10 minutes or less (after the initial installation). There is no need to remove and re-install the center / side stands when mounting and dis-mounting a Cozy sidecar.
  • Choice of body material
  • The eight following items are included in the base price of every Cozy sidecar
    (Be sure to note what is included in the base price when comparison shopping!)

    1. front bumper
    2. side guard
    3. utility / luggage rack
    4. passenger assist step
    5. windshield
    6. tonneau (dust) cover
    7. spare tire mount securely welded to the sidecar frame (scooter sidecars only)
    8. factory finish paint (acid dip, phosphate dip, 2 primer coats, 2 color coats, 2 clear coats — total 6 coats)
  • Your choice of finishes * included in the base price for the front bumper, side guard and sidecar rear utility / luggage rack of:
    • Heavy chrome plate, or
    • Gloss black powder coat, or
    • Matte black powder coat, or
    • Wrinkle (Japan) black powder coat
  • Scooter accessories available at extra cost include:
    • Spare tire and rim (frame mounted spare tire carrier is included with all Cozy scooter sidecars at no extra charge)
      (Cozy scooter sidecars use a 3.50 X 10 tire on a Vespa specification split rim)
    • Spare tire cover (scooter only)
    • Rack to mount sidecar or scooter spare on rear of scooter sidecar (replaces luggage rack)
    • folding front luggage rack* finished to match your Cozy sidecar trim
    • folding rear luggage rack* with or w/o spare tire mount finished to match your cozy sidecar trim
    • fixed front luggage rack* finished to match your Cozy sidecar trim
    • fixed rear luggage rack* with or w/o spare tire mount finished to match your cozy sidecar trim
    • front and rear cowl guards*
    • front and rear turn indicator lens guards*
    • front fender guard, with or without Piaggio logo*

* NOTE: It is difficult to color match a sidecar to an older motorcycle or scooter without seeing the vehicle. The paint that Cozy sprays is new paint and will exactly match a new motorcycle or scooter, but if your “pride and joy” is a few years old, it is likely that its paint has faded. If an exact color match is important we suggest that you get the sidecar in neutral gray (or a close generic color) and have it finish painted by a knowledgeable local automotive painter. They will know how to tint the paint, change the amount of reducer, adjust air pressure, etc. to get a perfect match. This is even more important if you have metallic paint as this has a “grain” which must also be matched to the vehicle paint “grain.” Subject to these limitations, cozy can apply pin striping in gold, white or other colors in styles which closely emulate those used on vintage and classic motorcycles and scooters which tend toward basic black and British Racing Green. A photograph of your desired pin striping details is required.

    You have also to keep in mind before purchasing any one that UV protection from sun rays is a must for the sunglasses.It is the best idea to go for branded one that have a rating of 100% in UVA and UVB protection. To get a perfect sunless, you just need to find out your face shape and then choose an eyeglass frame that would look best on you.
