Far from it though, there are several optional accessories that might be considered gimmick by other people who do not really fancy scooter but important to you. The following list shows some of the most used accessories in a scooter sidecar.
Sometimes you might have to drive your scooter in the rain or in very sunny weather. It might not be comfortable, but you just have to ride on somehow. There is an accessory to make the ride more comfortable for the extra passenger in the cart, which is a Calessino. It is a small canopy that will provide shade for your scooter sidecar passenger. It can be purchased in complete kit or you can just purchase the canopy itself. It is made of waterproof material that can shield you from rain and the sun as well.
The next accessory that is actually more of a functional part of a cart is floor mat. Floor mat ensures that the debris from your walk before getting into the cart will not be accumulated into the floor of the cart. That would be really difficult to clean. If you have a floor mat installed you only need to take it out, wash then dry it, before installing it back to your cart. It also provides nice cushion for your feet when you are riding. You need to cut the floor mat according to the shape of your cart’s floor so it fits snuggly inside.

It will enhance the vintage feeling of your vehicle. You can also install rear fender lamps for extra safety.
Every scooter sidecar already has a seat attached to its inside. However, sometimes you do not find the built in seat as comfortable or stylish enough for your vehicle. Some people opt to purchase seat not designed for the cart, but it might lead to grievous mistakes since the seat specifically designed for sidecar would have distinguish features from common seats. You can find this part easily in many sidecar workshops. They might come with in-service installation too.
This one can be considered a gimmick because it does not serve special or functional purpose. You can install the emblem of your scooter to the cart. Some workshops may provide it and even offered to install it to your cart. It is a nice aesthetical touch that makes your sidecar more wholesome.
