    There are brackets that are welded onto the frame and are part of it. Steering, pedals and instruments. The wiring harness would most certainly be a PITA, but, I am not sure of that. Some of the Brammo cars were made ambidexterous, but, not many as I know of mine and one other. Certainly it could be done and I am guessing much pain involved

    only if you order it with the ambidextrous chassis, it is a cost option on the list - i imagine you could ask for it to be lhd instead of rhd but by default in uk it appears as though they are built rhd

    I have an ambidexterous chassis equipped Atom. Changing sides is a matter of moving the dash pod, steering wheel, and pedal box, and then rerouting the hoses/wires for each. I would estimate that a do-it-yourselfer could do it in a few hours with basic tools, if you have the option equipped on your Atom.
