    Looking at the prices of used 06 K1200s, he only wants 24k for the sidecar!

    DRONE please go see him and see if you can work why he's probably 10k to high into the conversation ? :-)
    I know you attempt to try and get along with everyone.

    Regarding that blue Hannigan Hi performance K Rig- A friend of a friend has one which she hired Hannigan to build and I will say that it is very very impressive and although I have not ridden it I have been told that it absolutely screams and handles very very nicely.. The owners husband has a center hub k1200 set up on what I believe is an EML and for my money I don't need the super sensitive twitchy center hub set up.
    I was also impressed at what the Hannigan build cost.(Wheels/Subframe/Car/Front for less than $20K....and done on schedule!.....Christ that's comparable to what that lame ass 1150 GSA build I had done cost by the "to remain unnamed" PNW shop in 2004!

    The center hubs aren't all the twitchy once you get on to it SLACKER but I will admit till I let some air out of the tires and settled down it wasn't easy getting started on learning to drive it, it's not like a conventional sidecar at all. It's turn the caster up till one gets used to it then back it up a couple degrees a week even Claude admits to have over steered Hannigans personal rig trying to have a go.

    I gotta say that my center hub steer isn’t twitchy at all, anymore. It did take a lot of work to get it dialed in but now it’s just plain sweet. Actually it’s pretty forgiving.

    We can only hope ! On the other hand I can see why there's no much support in the US for center hub rigs.

    Velorex isn't made in Russia, it's made in Czechoslovakia. Just in case you all were wondering. Either way, that's a pretty funny ad, he must be Colorado dreaming!

    Agree. He's priced at about twice what it's worth. Good luck to him.

    "Pokie did you imply your considering selling your Champion a couple days ago ?"

    Yes, the bikes been great and the family just loves the sidecar but we're just not using it. Last year alone it only got about 50 miles added to the clock. It's a shame to see it just sit there. Every now and then I advertise it but I don't take it all that seriously. I just offered it for 11K but he wants to get a GS. Folks don't recognize the value in a well sorted rig.

    Yikes that is a fair deal, even though I am not a fan of the BMW cruiser I saw another last year with a huge Hannigan and a small trailer and the owner said he got around just fine. After checking your subframe etc that's a pretty nice bit of fabricating :clap:clap
