    Yep, if I was still looking for a Terraplane I would be all over that one in Arizona.

    talked to him yesterday... it needs a bit of work. But I need to wait
    until I talk to Dauntles Monday.

    No use of buying one you can't get parts for.

    Thanks all..........

    Think F A B R I C A T I O N.....The Vetter Terraplanes are excellent sidecars and a lot of them are on the road. They are indeed a little different, so to speak, but well worth trying one on if you like the style. Jay has some mounts but if they are not for you application (it is doubtful) and you are not set on using the Vetter three point mounting system you can do very well by switching to a more conventional four point mount.
    You WILL need a subframe either way. Jay will have subframes for your bike.
    There is a Yahoo Group just for Vetter Terraplane and they do have quite a following.
