Of course we make both and are local to you.
We do not have an air head in the shop right now for you to see however we do have a Convert which as you know is almost the same as a G-5. We also often open the shop up after Moto Guzzi club breakfasts as the breakfast is only about 10 minutes from us.

Have you found your subframe? I have a sidecar rig based on a R100RS. I am thinking about taking the bike back to solo, and removing the subframe and leading link. The sidecar I have on the R100 is a larger Motorvation Formula 11 that is a bit big and heavy for the Airhead. I have another rig, a Dnepr on a R75/5. With a lower final drive this is a good handling and fun rig.
The sub frame on the R100 is a custom made frame by a guy in West Virginia that used to be a sidecar rigger, Sidecar Magic Shoppe. The leading link is a EML set up with mounts for Brembo brakes.
Let me know if this is something of interest to you.
