    Claude,

    Love the design.

    Just a thought here.
    What if you put a boat style (like a canoe) rear end on it?
    I know it would cut down on storage, but it would look cool.
    Cheers.

    It seems a foregone conclusion, that whatever you produce, Claude, will be an outstanding design. A couple of questions, if I may. What width track are you aiming for (minimum/max)? Same as to weight? Thanks

    +1 on this design suggestion, Claude. I really think a more aerodynamic looking tail end would make it very special.

    Looking good Claude!

    Might want to take a minute or two to set the time and date on the camera. It's 2012 in the rest of the world already!

    Have a glitch with our email right now, VERY FRUSTRATING! Hopefully it will be corrected today!!!!
    We are working on the sidecar chassis right now. For this model we have designed a new sidecar chassis and suspension rather than adapt the typical type chassis we use on the dual sport adventure type outfits. It has an underslung shock and a built in manual tilt adjustor. These chassis will allow less ground clearance and still maintain a decent swingarm angle. This chassis can be utilized with any of our other body designs if desired. No antiswaybar is incorporated although one can be added if desired.

    Anyone want to volunteer a name for the sidecar body design? We are open for suggestions of course.

    The one on the bottom left would look good on my Vstrom.
    I think this style of tail compliments the design.
    Though the cut out could be more uniform with the front part of the cut out.
