Hard call on that one, Cleatus? Certainly some gorgeous workmanship and a beautiful outfit. Also has some really great features here and there. I'm thinking it would look better if it looked worse, as in some paint that wasn't so incredi-shiny and spotless, maybe something in semigloss, or a light sand blasting job.

Personally I've never been able to figure out tubs that have the upright seating position with no lateral support for cornering stability, as in passenger retention. I can't imagine how it wouldn't be hard as heck to stay seated or relax and enjoy the ride, especially with the many I've seen with a flat seat upholstered in smooth vinyl. Sure, for racing the monkey earns their name but for pleasure rigs, I dunno. Maybe it's just me. Probably.....

I like your builds and design concepts a lot better

Interesting that while it doesn't look like a build that was done on the cheap, it uses regular motorcycle tires.

Pic of a Dutch hack, as far as I can see by the floor/carpets and walls shot at the biiiiiig anual Motorcycle Show in Utrecht ( centre of Holland ).

I'm visiting today ( and picking up my VMax at the end of the day, it's @ the specialpainters stand ).

See if I can find this rig

I'm not too sure you could trust a monkey, that when he went behind a tree, needed something that bright to find his way back.

That's not my cup of tea, but I'd be willing to test the design and strength for a couple years at little cost to builder.

There is a mag in Germany, the so called "Motorrad Gespanne".
In the issue number 132 from 2012, you can read the article, about the dutch woman who owns the hack.
Perhaps nitro can get in contact to the lady, cause she and her husband will do a long trip and it would be nice to wellcome them here.

I'm not 100% sure on the two car tires (pusher and sidecar) but I think they are Toyo Proxes 4 which is a high-performance all-season tire. The front tire is a Heidenau K60 Scout (Rear)--the one with the center rib. The spare looks like an Avon Distanzia.

Last summer I rode for a few days with a R1100 rig with that kind of chair. The monkee was 100% as committed and 100% as focused as the driver. She leaned on EVERY turn and curve sometimes throwing her weight all the way over to the pillion. She used the grab handles a lot, and used her legs and torso to shift her weight around. She considered herself an active part of the team, not a passenger. And the driver rode the rig trusting her to do her job. If she dozed off for even one curve, he'd likely be dealing with a flying car or a sliding bike. It was really refreshing to watch as I followed them.

This was Iain and Debz on the "Patta" rig halfway through their RTW ride. Here's a pic of Debz right here--




She is, BTW, a skilled solo bike rider. Rode her own bike from England south to Senegal (Africa) a couple of years ago, and is planning to tour South America with Iain on two Honda XR's next year.

When you're done with it, call me & I'll continue the evaluation.

I did some pics of the rig, will post them tomorrow. Owner wasn't there, only the builder.
I did see the Motorrad Gespanne with the article.
