That appears to be Squire sidecar, (Or a Velorex) it also appears you only need the four fittings for the Electra X frame.
I suggest sending the picture to Watsonian -Squire tell them what bike you want to fit it too, and they should have the fittings in stock. ( You need to measure the holes on the end of the fittings on the sidecar to determine if the are 7/16th or 10mm)

As the fittings you want me be unobtainable from Watsonian-Squire due to obsolescence your next port of call is I suggest here:-

Hi
Your sidecar is a Squire (the clue is the Squire badge) I believe it is a ST1 model having just bought one to fit on my 1960 Meteor Minor I
Squire and Watsonian are now the same company and have a limited amount of parts arable there fitting kits are quite expensive
The sidecar is attached to the bike in 4 places
1/ Top of front down tube
2/ lower front engine to frame bolt Watsonian say they drill engine plates and fit a spacer between the plates
3/ rear foot rest holder as my bike is a 1960 Meteor Minor I have fitted it to where the side stand fits
4/ at the top of the rear shock absorber

Where to find fittings
EBay need to be sure what you are buying and it will fit
Owens Motorcycles ltd 01978 266087 see the web site and call has lots of fittings and has a good idea what fits I bought the missing parts from here
YouTube has videos of fitting sidecars to Enfield’s but with different make of fittings

Useful web sites on setting up sidecars i.e. toe in, motorcycle lean out act.
