The Warkshop

I will post some pics in a few days, but I got my new rig today. I bought a 2006 HD Superglide and bought a Texas Ranger from Bob Wark and he did the install. He is about 3hrs from me so I trailered the bike to him.

He did a great job and did it QUICKLY. Very good turnaround. Bob is a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgable. My previous rig I bought a Velorex from Bob and installed myself on my 86 Moto Guzzi. After 12 yrs with that rig it was time for something different.

I have the distinct pleasure of being the only repeat sidecar purchaser. He said he has repeats for paint work but most people either lose interest in sidecars or don't seem to come back for a new one.

And for a reasonable fee, Bob delivered it to me as our schedules were tough to sync.

Anyhow, I can't recommend Bob enough. If more people treated others like Bob does...the world would be a better place.

When I was first getting into sidecars I reached out to Bob for advice. He called me back and was very generous with his time. Seemed like a straight forward and genuine guy.

Looking forward to pics.

Bob Wark

I am also a fan of the Warkshop.
He answered his phone late one Sunday morning and then spent quite a while advising me about my sidecar outfit (which I did not buy from him).
I look forward to doing business with him in the future.

Looks great! the Ranger is a proper looking match for the Dyna and compliments it well. The foot boards on the bike are a nice touch too. Unlike extended pegs they allow the rider to move feet and legs in different positions and make long mile days a lot easier, I like having them on my bike!

I agree Carl, I have a Road glide (floorboards) and two Moto Guzzi's with floor boards. I HAD to add them to the Dyna. Much better than the forward controls it came with.

Thanks to all for the compliments, I am quite pleased with it!!

I stopped in and visited the Warkshop, a few years ago when I was in Marietta for another event. That was before I had gotten my feet wet with sidecars. Even though I didn't buy anything that day, and have since disobeyed some of his advice, I found him very helpful and knowledgeable.

Since then I have cadged a test ride on a bike that a guy I know slightly here in town, had set up with help from Bob. The handling was spectacular. If you are willing to choose one of the bikes he recommends, he's a great guy to work with. And his advice about which bikes are suitable, is very practical and wise. I'd be better off if I could like a more appropriate motorcycle. :)
