I think that's a Cozy Euro, lightweight sidecar from India. I've seen them on Royal Enfields.
past afflictions include limey motocars and bikes, R60/2, R65ls, and a Citroen.

That car is kinda light weight for a Harley IMO. I would thinks it frame would be flexy dealing the Harley pulling it.
yeah, I might be addicted to brake fluid. But I can stop any time I want.

A light Cozy on a 'light' Harley? What's not to like? Certainly more beans than a 750cc BMW R75/5 with a sidecar. There's a guy down in Santa Maria that has a chair lashed up to a 900cc Snortster and it hauls a$$.

A new Cozy goes for around $3,495...

Cozy, Inder and other brands have been around for a while. They get their design cues from the vintage German cars like Steib. Their copy of the LS200, aka "canoe" is pretty well executed. They also make an attempt at a copy of the S350 that is not as well done. If you posted this because you may be interested in one, word on the street is the early ones were not made very well and prone to cracking in both the tub and frame. I've heard that quality has improved significantly since they first started hitting our shores. I suspect being linked up with Royal Enfield helped. There was a guy in TX whose name escapes me right now, that was an old sidecar expert and fitting a lot of the early Indian hacks to bikes. I've spoken to him and he normally made frame mods/improvements or made frames from scratch. I believe he passed away several years ago.

My complaint with them is that they are small. I'm spoiled by the size of the Ural hack. I'm not sure I'd want to see my wife try to wriggle her way into a Cozy. Worse would be watching her try to get out. Before I got my Ural, I looked at a /2 with a Velorex 562. The tub looked small to me so I thought I'd get in to see. It was not fun and getting out was worse. I'm fit, not fat and very limber. I lost all interest in a Velo hack after that. So, keep that in mind as you search for a hack.

Yeah, a Cosy is a tub to haul one child or a small pup, recommendable to hang aside a small motorcycle.

It looks spotless in paint.... possibly very little use.
... for some reason.

I trust more in these two originals:

The wear marks tell they are usable.

So Cozy, Bullet, Rocket, this Bemer....are all Inder products from what I can find online.

15 in wide tub. That is small or my info is bad.
Looks bigger. Don't know if this Bemer is the old problematic or newer/better build.

As with the others replies. The brand ID is correct, it's a the Euro canoe version of the Cozy sidecar. Not real common in the US. At least not as much as the round nose Bullet Cozy which was an option on US imported Royal Enfields. Also agree the frame/mounts are pretty cheap/generic and IMHO kinda flimsy for rough use. Strictly for pavement use though may(?) hold up OK? A friend has one on a 500cc RE but his is for local errand/shopping use so no dirt work etc and it's holding up OK... BUT... as mentioned it's a lightweight chair and IMHO too light for a 1000CC Sportster or a Ural. Also agree that it's a SMALL tub. My neighbor just hauls his small dog or groceries locally and seems adequate. I've ridden in the tub and my old body is not as flexible as it was years ago and ingress/egress even for skinny old me is a real chore. Once seated not real comfortable for many miles. I would not want to do again unless I really had to. :(
