    We have had a couple in the shop. One had a rigid suspension and mounts for the bike frame made from 1/4" flat bar welded into a 't' with instructions to drill through the bike frame and attach with the 5/16 bolts supplied. Per their directions. Both ends of the upper struts were heim ends and the thing wiggled all over the place after the poor owner installed it . Face it you can only bend a paper clip so many times before it breaks!! Total death trap on many levels . The other one had a rubber torsion suspension with similar mounting hardware. One had a pretty decent glass body on it which we put on a new chassis with our mounts. The other had a rounded nosed body that looked like it was formed using a propane tank for the nose. Some are either Cozys or Inders I think which are a little better than what we had in here but are still too light. A terrible state off affairs all around , simply terrible!! Jay Geise (DMC) was the first I had heard about blowing the whistle on this junk and he was dead on right. Hats off the him FOR BEING RIGHT !!! So right that even the USCA has warned people about them. Check the better business bureau claims on them. I understand there are many .

    Boy, now's the time to buy a sidecar rig if you want one. Pretty surprised that nice Rocket III is still available. Be interesting to see how Mr. Cob does. That's a nice rig but I'm not sure how strong the market is for GS rigs.

    But still in a reasonable range. It's a nice rig for someone who is aware of what they are getting into, IMNSHO!
    I'm really surprised this hasen't tempted you! :deal
    Glad I'm close to making a deal on 4 wheels.......:augie

    I'm sort of over my leaner leaning but I should still call Claude, who often refers to them as the worst of both worlds, Kalich in Germany will build you one and ship it here if necessary.I'm reasonably sure that rig sold for about 6500 the last time it was sold. You can buy RS's all day as nice or nicer for 3500 the Armec is not worth that kind of money !

    Yeah I was hoping I could buy just the Armec for $3k but he won’t separate. Maybe he will in another 6 months.

    Not sure he really wants to sell the Rocket3 rig. When I called several months ago to get more info, he immediately proceeded to describe all the problems he was having with it, front in wobble, terrible handling, etc... etc.....

    That's another "Yes Dear, it IS for sale, I just don't understand why no one has bought it"!

    Just picked up a very lightly used velorex. Was going to keep it for another rig, but if I can get the right price I will sell. Looking to get $1800. Has a brand new wind screen, tonneau cover and the manual. Message for more info. Model is 562. Located in Southern NJ [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I haven't clicked the link to see what Drone is asking for that, but I can say that I bought my wife - who at the time commuted year round, at 3am, in Portland, OR - one of those for her Vespa and she loved it. That and handlebar muff things and she was toasty and dry even in the wet snow.
