A rig that is six foot eight inches wide?
 
Maybe it's the color that makes it's ass look fat.

Hey, I like pink, thank-you-very-much!! :thumb

I'd drive that, but I already have a car. :lol3

Pink is reserved for elephants after a late night
 
Actually its width is the same as my height. <g><g>

However for those of you young enough can you recall a 1960 Buick with those
huge fins? There wider than the 108" allowed for vehicles, then. I believe one or
two of the southern US states advised said cars would have to mount clearance lights on the edges of the fins as the vehicle exceeded the standard approved road width of motor vehicles at the time.

Mind the pink colour might be oK for somebody promoting breast cancer research; then again
is this a transmogrification of a Goldwing and Hannigan or EZS sidecar?</g>

six feet eight does sound wide, but my Harley rig is six feet four, you must be too used to that little Ural :D

That is a Hannigan "Sidebike". They Grafted the hack body onto their Trike body kit. I asked about them when I had my hack installed last January. They probably won't make any more as that was one of the molds they lost in the fire a few years ago.

I can't find the 'Mary Kay" decal.

That's about an inch wider than a new F150 :deal

Actually it was called a Hannigan TriCar. Cross between a trike and a sidecar outfit. If you all take a close look you will see the rear wheel of the bike is offset to the left. Quite a few of these were built with many being sent to Japan. The concept was a good one but never really caught on here in the states. Don't recall the pricing but it was up there due to obvious reasons. Yep. it is wide but it is certainly a very stable machine.

At what point does a cage make more sense?

About a millisecond before you bid on this thing.

I admire the engineering and thought, but the end product is just weird.

A couple thousand dollars back made more sense, I have an agreement with several friends I'm to be euthanized if found driving a Wing trike faster if I'm pulling a trailer with it.DB
Don't get me started on the fish on the back.DB
