I do understand and appreciate your words...
An old gunsmith/machinist friend of mine once said "nothing is permanent if you have torches and a welder"... For some, the lean conversion would be easily reversible, and for others, not so. It's the latter we speak of because those are also the people that don't understand it. In essence, what this conversion does is allow you to infinitely adjust (up & down at the touch of a button) where your sidecars upper shock mount is. Once this conversion is on the sidecar, I can't see a reason why anyone would need/want to remove it. If you don't like using it, just set it where the factory setting was and leave it... Even if the actuator motor goes south (and you just don't want to buy another) you can simply disconnect it and screw it out to what ever point you like and leave it. If you're not committed to this conversion, I'd say don't do it... Read more, research more, understand it and become committed, beforehand. This is a custom installation, It requires removing parts of the frame and adding others (upper shock mount, swing arm stop, etc). Sure, if you have the capability to install it you have the capability to remove it. If you have it installed by someone else, figure it'll cost about the same amount to have it "un-installed"... Personally, I have no problem putting my sidecar under the torch for the betterment of my rig. My rig will always be a work in progress, in fact every motorcycle I own can be counted the same. Motorcyclists are a breed apart from that of our 4 wheeled friends in that we desire to be different, we seek a better way. I recently installed 8 degree trail reduction triple trees and that's a process I didn't relish, but I'm already thinking about changing them to 6 degree trees, and I have no problem with that. I run a car tire on the back of my tug (Valkyrie Interstate), and my next project will probably be modification so I can run a Valkyrie wheel with a car tire on the sidecar. That way I'll get better mileage out of both, and I'll be able to use one spare. All this said, please let me point out, that there is nothing I like better than discussing motorcycles, so anyone with an interest, is encouraged to contact me, and lets "BS" a bit. You can contact me through the Craigs List ad URL below, and once that expires I can be contacted through my internet book business as well, http://www.GunShowBooks.com
... I'm confident anyone who understands it will want it, the only consideration is of course, money. Some will think the costs out weigh the benefits, and others (like myself) will think it's cheap at any price. For those that contact me, a word of caution, as is obvious by my first two posts, I can be a bit long winded... http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/wsh/m ... 48218.html
