Hope you don't mind a question. What vent is that on the Escort and does it supply enough air and ventilation for the passenger without use of the supplied floor vent? Thanks, Mike

Mike,

Are the bike tires original?
Do you have to in snap the top from the windshield for the passenger to enter?

Thanks
Gary

Hello Gary,

The top has to be unsnapped from windshield before opening car for seating as it is hinged at the nose. Tires on bike are original with no cracking since bike has been stored in garage its whole life.
I would estimate 60% plus tread life left.

Regards,

Mike

Hello,

There is no damage to the valve cover or anywhere else on bike. Please be more specific and I will send a close up photo of area in question.

107jpg was the picture I was referring to. Where the valve cover meets the head right in front of the shifter. I like the rig and if it isn't sold by Oct, I may jump on it. Who set up the car?

My fault! I looked at 106 and it shows a better shot. I didn't know they were two piece covers.

Thank you for your interest. The car was installed by Ray's Sunshine Cycle of Lakeland, Florida. I spoke to Ray this afternoon and he remembers the bike. 863 667-1353

Could you tell me what the width of the rig is from widest fender point to widest fender point? I have a trailer that is 80" wide. Thank you

Hello Chuck,

The width at the widest point looks to be 78 1/4". I think it would be tough to align the rig properly when driving onto trailer with only 5/8" clearance on either side. I can get a more accurate measure by using a framing square and marking floor if you have serious interest as it may be a bit less than the 78 1/4".

Correction, 7/8" clearance each side.

If you use a full length track leading into a front wheel "chock" that is very close to the actual size of your tire, getting very accurate positioning is easy. I had to do just that with a previous trailer.

Also the height of any side rails on the trailer is an important consideration. My left saddle bag hangs over the low side rails. If they were higher it wouldn't fit.

That sure is a beautiful combination and unfortunately I'm going to have to pass. You're right, that's very tight clearance and the trailer sides hold the tailgate pins. They are too high to accommodate the rig. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate it.

There have been a few questions regarding fuel efficiency of this rig. I just returned from a solo ride to the White Mountain region of New Hampshire traveling mostly hilly back roads with average speed of 40 to 55 MPH.
Miles per gallon on trip: 34.585. Was a great ride for under $10.

No heated seats or grips? Can I get a picture without the fairing bra on?
