For the price he paid to do that he could for 1/2 the price just buy a convertable car.

Well, I am officially "old" I guess...I would opt for the convertible too...top goes up when it rains, and in case of a "critter" (bug) swarm...;)

I saw one of those at Wings Over the Smokies last year! As far as cost, when I asked the vendor he said first ya buy the bike for say,, $20,000, the trike rear end for about $12,000, and then you have the front end kit installed for about another $12,000,,, Say about $44,000,,,, before sales tax!!! :shock::shock:

Does nothing for me.

I'd rather see more pics of that SuperMagna you were working on a while back. :)

Well you have to understand in my fantasy world where I can own all of these cool toys money is no object. For instance not only could I afford the quad wing and a lot of other toys but have the garage space to house them and the money to pay for the annual licenses.

How is this thing street legal? Four wheels make it car.

What a waste of money! It's no longer a bike. For the price of one of those things one could buy a very nice car. Just my thoughts.

I think the side view looks great, not sure on the front though, looks like the front part of a snow mobile stuck on.

Not sure if you guys saw this there was a combination, sidcar unit made by EML a Dutch company and that had 4 wheels, the two normal bike wheels and 2 on the chair.

That can be arranged Wingnumberone. Just pm me your e-mail and I can send you loads.....

BTW, I wasn't actually working on it. I bought her when she waslooking a bit neglected, and did some cosmetic stuff to make her look good, and then did some stuff to 'personalise'.......as you do.

Why not just hook up two Goldwings? Twice the horsepower, four seats, and it would be cheaper. Along the same lines as the P-51 to the P-82:

What *I* would like to see, and is probably the only way I would ever ride with a sidecar, is something with articulated linkage that allowed the sidecar to lean with the motorcycle, so that the motorcycle could turn as it was intended, without side-loading the suspension.

I seem to remember seeing something of the sort on an old episode of CHIPs when I was a kid.

My question is why? Does it handle any better than a trike?

Didn't Vetter produce a 1 wheel sidecar that leaned with the bike back in the late 70's or early 80's?
