Anyone know this setup?

Listed for sale not too far away - it is tempting/taunting me. 1975 R90S(?) with a cargo style hack, and what appears to be a really nicely set up tug. Leading link forks, handlebar m/c, car tire conversion, monoshock conversion, Heinrich tank. A bit rough around the edges, but I like 'em that way.

If anyone has any insight into its history, please share.

Not totally sure who built the bike but the sidecar is one of ours. It is a cargo body although we could fit other body styles to the chassis. We put the combination together for Frank D. out of New York. Great guy and long time sidecarist. Frank also has a Hannigan HP outfit.
The bike is an older build which did have a Steib on it. It has a decent leading link, mono shock rear suspension conversion, car tires etc as noted. Cool outfit.

Claude - thanks for insight. It is located in NY. I have not contacted the seller, and the $7500 asking price is giving me pause. I suspect it is a good value for the setup, even though the bike is showing ~115k miles on it. I also would prefer a more traditional tub rather than the cargo box. Not sure if this is the right time or the right rig for me to dive into a sidecar with.

Pretty neat rig. Fun to have the box while out by yourself trippin around. then have a spare tub that would seat others would make a nice combo.

Sure looks Bitchin tho.

Buy the rig and I'll trade you that sidecar for my rebuilt Dnepr sidecar. You'll love it

Seriously, a decent 90S is worth $5k, used LL $1500, Heinrich tank $1k plus the fairing and swingarm mods so the bike alone is worth the asking price.

Dan has it nailed!. You could also mod that body to haul folk. Cut/weld/grind/paint/repeat. There is a bunch of value there, trick is has how well or not does the old girl run,,,if it don't run then it is a huge risk,,,,might win,,,might not.
What is the price anyway??

Oops! OK $7500,,,,if that thing runs well run, don't walk there and buy it!

With the caveat that this is a custom and such like beasties generally require a hands on owner who can wrench and maybe even weld. If you are like many and aren't allowed to change the spark plug in your lawnmower (for fear you'd screw it up) stand away for the custom!

Thanks for all the encouragement from my fellow crack heads. More crack for everybody!

Bob - mechanical aptitude is not the issue. I am just wrestling with the notion of getting into a sidecar now when I am still "fettling" my R100T, and teaching my boys to ride. But . . . THAT rig is 90% of what I would want in a hack, with the lone exception being lack of 2WD. And the (solvable) passenger seat issue.

The rig is represented as a fully sorted, turn-key ride.

Looks like I might have to make the trip to NY. And beat up my tax advisor for a big refund.

We could do a different body to go on that frame. Could also do a smaller hatch on the larger one to accommodate a passenger. You could also cource a used body to put on thef sidecar frame.
If it is the type of rig you want as far a mechanicals go it may be a great deal for you. Add uo the estimated cost of reproducing the outfit minus th esideca rbody and I think you will see what we are talking about.

Claude - if this rig comes into my possession, you and I will be speaking. :) I am less than 2 hours from you. This cargo box looks like it has the lid within a lid, so it appears a number of options may exist to create a passenger access friendly box.

I have reached out to the seller.
