Texas Sidecar Company History

The Texas Sidecar Company was officially formed in late 2000 but the products have a long history and the owners have been involved with sidecars for many years.

CJ and Ardis Foust founded the Ride-By-Side company in 1979 in Hartland, Michigan.  They began with one model – now called the Standard.  It has been a popular choice for small- and mid-displacement motorcycles for over 20 years.  A variation of the Standard, which has a smaller wheel and custom mounting, has been mated to quite a few Honda Helixes.

The Standard grew in width to become the new Ranger model.  Several hundred of these were built over the years and have been mounted on almost every popular make and model motorcycle, from Honda to Harley.

The Texas Sidecar Company was purchased by Kent Silk in July of
2019. The company is currently located in Houston, TX.
