Honda Helix w/ Sidecar

Thought this was interesting. What do you guys think? Any takers at that price if you were in the area? I am newer to the scooter world and have not seen one with a sidecar. A Helix, I mean. And I know some Honda Elite / Helix fans are here, so.....

Wow, that is great. I had a Helix a while back. They are great scooters and I regret selling it. It isn't far from me so now I have to try not to buy this.

If you can, get it. So much fun.

I like it! I wonder how much speed that cuts off the top end. Looks pretty light - should work great as a grocery getter or something to pick up the kid from baseball practice.

Wow, that's pretty sharp, and I'd be VERY tempted. Have you asked around in the Hacks forum for some input?

Very cool. I just bought a P200 with sidecar this past week, and I'm looking forward to getting to work on it!

Let us know if you pick it up.

If you want to try out a sidecar rig I think it is a good deal. It would be nice to take an experienced sidecar driver to try it out for you. Check out the handling,etc.

I'd buy that in 2 seconds if it was in my town. THats a whopping deal if it runs good and the car is stable!

A side car on a helix from what others have said cuts off around 7 to 10 mph. Texas sidecars makes one but really whom want to drop 4 grand on one. One day i build one for my helix. Just extends the time you can use your helix to year round.
