As every thing in life there are two sides to a situation Although not blameless the account of the facts is not acurate

Then, what is the other side?
Yes please let's hear the "facts" then. ???

Welcome. Many of us aspired to own one of these cars and its sad that the manufacturing has stopped. Would be interesting to hear the accurate facts.

WD's love a good story.

No worries Vis Arende... your enthusiasm and passion for these rigs along with Lew and others that are still to receive theirs are what made this all worthwhile for me. It's a special thing to see others enjoying something so much that previously was just figment of my imagination and a dream. As mentioned Sarge really does do good work building these sidecars I designed.... so stick with him.

The reality is he is extremely exacting and fastidious about the quality of his work, which is sorely needed when building a sidecar for a bike as big and powerful as the BMW 1200 GS, unfortunately our fall out over an agreement we shook hands and agreed to was the 'icing on the cake' for me and the last of many disappointments I have had to deal with with suppliers over the past 18 months.

Perhaps, in time, Sylvia, Tau and myself will be up and riding again... Tentatively I already have my eye on a bullet proof BMW 1150 GSA, a bike that I had before and that may be a more affordable option for me in the future to build and attach a tough and rugged offroad cart to. This time it will be just for me and something I will build in my own garage without have to deal with the hassles of working with outside manufacturers.

Keep on riding Arende, no regrets from my side... you're a inspiration to us all!  :ricky:

On that note I am now going to lock this thread. Sarge has had a chance to reply and chose not to. I dont think further discussins will make a meaningful contribution to this board.

Keith may I suggest you post your sale on the For Sale board.
