You might also take a look at our Classic it is pretty much the same body style as Liberty but for less money and with less of a lead time.
Liberty is located only about 40 miles from us. If you can swing it why not come by and see both?

Hi Steve Ive got a Motorvation Spyder on my 2001 Heritage Springer and love
it (lead time 20 months).
I also have a DMC Classic on my 2002 FLHTCUI (lead time 5 months) great design and for my money the DMC wins not for the lead time advantage but a little better frame.
Liberty is good too just do not know lead times.

Our lead times are currently at 4 months, we are working on moving to a larger facility, should know more if the sale goes through next week. If we can buy the larger building it will allow us to add two more people in every department as well as bring powder coat and paint in house. With this we hope to get our lead times to under 6 weeks, the goal is 2 weeks for painted a few days not painted. Of course it will take time to find and train the right people and buy the needed equipment.

Again, thanks for all the advice.
I went with Liberty. Here in the Southeast (I live in Alabama, Roll Tide!) the few sidecars I have seen have all been Liberty. The only one I have seen at a dealership was a Liberty. I just could not consider a different brand without being able to see it.
Once the build actually begins I will start a build thread and post updates.

Did you pay half up front with a guarantee on delivery date for full payment? Some disreputable suppliers (NOT Liberty!) have been know to take full payment then him and haw a lot when they miss their delivery "estimate".
Anyway, I look forward to your build thread! In the mean time, read all you can about "piloting" a rig. Perhaps take a S/TEP class. I know there are some in Texas. You are a step ahead of the average motorcyclist as you are familiar with yaw and waggle. Two movements that most lack the appropriate "butt sensors" for.

You will not go wrong with Liberty. Pete Larson makes one of the nicest looking sidecars on the planet. Attention to detail is excellent. Others, including us at freedom Sidecars also do a spin off of that earlier Harley sidecar but Liberty takes things a step higher in some ways. Good choice !!
