Thanks again, I found this site two years ago when I went to a bike part show in North Carolina and a guy selling site cars left brochures in his empty booth. I went online and joined. The info and help is priceless. Thanks again. You guys rock!!

when i found myself without the hinge due to my own brain dead state in 06...... traded in the bike and kept the sidecar and even though I installed the kit originally - forgot a few small items....... & when i realized it the old bike had been wholesaled out already and i was stuck... bummer

got the latch and the lower fairing from hd - could not find one anywhere

the next week both parts appeared on ebay and sold for half what i paid

check ebay once a week and eventually the lower will show up... the latch... possibly.

Ebay is a great place to find parts. Anyone near North Carolina at the Metrolina Expo Center in Charlotte can pick up almost anything at the bike swap meet. It is March 27 & 28th. I'm looking for 100 yr anniv. medalions for my new hannigan . Last year I needed the rear spocket that had stripped off and found a new one for 10 dollars! I also paid 10 for a harley tow hitch. This is the largest meet I ever been to!

Yes, eBay is a good source. Everyone who owns a sidecar rig, Harley-Davidson or otherwise should make it a habit to look at eBay frequently. I go through there nearly every day to see what is for sale in rigs and parts. I use keywords "sidecar" or Harley sidecar" and will usually get 2 to 3 hundred listings. Many of them are documents like photos, and such but if you refine your search for "motor vehicles" or "transportation" only, those items will drop out.

Recently therre have been many sidecar mounts and other related items. I've sold many parts there myself in the past few years. It's a great market place. No, I don't have any eBay stock. LOL.

I used to go to lots of motorcycle swap meets in Northern California all of the time but the past few years they are not as common. There are some in state owned buildings and fairgrounds but the costs can be discouraging. For example, many shows have a $10 per head admission with $10 for parking. That's $30 for two people, just to get in. And if you get hungry, forget about it until later. I don't drink in public anymore but they are getting $5.00 for a 12 ounce cup of beer and $4.00 for a soda. Then there are the hot dogs. $4.00! No Thanks.

So eBay is looking pretty good these days. LOL.

Yes, the blue lights belong to law enforcement practically worldwide. If you just got a warning, you were lucky. They seldom give warnings in California. They get their ticket book out the moment they stop you.

The 96 goldwing with hannigan astro I have 4 sale has purple leds had a scecret button I didn't know about and it had 6 blue strobe lights. I took them off real fast!!! I'll put them on one of my grandsons Toys later. I own a c store with a Subway in it. We give ALL cops half off subs, always free pop and coffee and across town I own a carwash and we give them free carwashes or token for free carwash and vacuums. We also put on poker run to benefit the local fire dept. It is a volunteer FD and when one is in need we give $$ to help the firemen out. Town insurance for them is lousey so when they get hurt they fall behind on payments so we step in.
