    I am importing an old sidecar from Europe into Canada. Anyone have experience with this? What can I expect to go through with Customs when the rig hits Toronto? Thanks for the help.

    A sidecar by itself is just an accessory.  An old European made sidecar should be no problem, maybe just GST.

    Parts for motorcycles over 25 years old are - in my experience - exempt from import duty. I would assume that an old sidecar as a "used part" for an old motorcycle would fall into the same category. Worthwhile to check this out beforehand.
