I got me a new Rig

02 RKC with 900 miles
Hannigan classic w/elec trim
Champion reverse

I'm pretty excited







Can someone suggest a source for some raked trees at a decent price?

I put a set of slip-ons on the other day and I've got a PCIII and ab s&s intake here for it.

Real Nice! It'll have plenty of grunt to move the car around.
The Road King uses the "Backward" triple tree so the older less expensive repop adjustable Harley trees will not work for you. You'll need to go the more expensive route of raked trees through a sidecar or trike supplier.

Welcome to the dark side.

An `02 with 900 miles, has to be a sad story to go with that.

One point that someone I rode with mentioned about my Hannigan Classic is that the right rear signal light can be hard to see, too close to side of sidecar. I removed the Hannigan light and installed the stock right signal light off my Sportster in it's place That moves it out 3-4 inches from the body and makes it better to be seen. I cut a piece of 1/8 aluminum the same shape as the Hannigan lamp and used the rubber gasket from that to hide the original hole in the body. If I think of it I'll take a close up later today and post it here.

Just don't want to give car drivers a reason to say "I didn't See Him"

I wanted to buy one of his windshields last year and was told arrogantly that was not going to happen because my sidecar did not come from him.

If I was looking for trees for a late model RK I wouldn't go to Liberty for that song and dance again. Great guy my ass!
