Default Sidecar people?

Brother just got and Enfield (India job) 500 bullet. He wants to carry lots of "Oograh" around with him and he likes chair outfits.
Are there any actual Dealers in the North of England, as opposed to manufacturers who would be biased in their own products?

look for the website of the federation of sidecar clubs. there is a forum (members only though iirc) though the classifieds are open to anyone, and links to several of the uk's sidecar clubs.

The english dealer for Royal Enfield is Watsonian Squire. Might be worth having a look at their stuff?

ive had many many sidecars over the years. why not post the requirements on here, and i'll see if i can figure which sidecar he will be best with.
firstly, how many seats in the chair does he want, and does he want the chair open or enclosed?, and what sort of stuff will he want to take with him when he goes away on it. that will give me an idea as to what he would be best with.

Thanks all.
He needs it for carting model airplanes around a lot of the time but it needs to be able to sit a fat git like me at other times. Finaces are tight so he's happy with something that's sound and needs fettling a bit maybe?
