The marriage is finally complete. Thanks to Claude Stanley and the gang at Freedom Sidecars in Middleburg, PA.

Handles like a dream. Very stable on the highway and with the change of the triple trees to reduce trail it turns super easy in town. I don't think we'll be doing any off-roading though.

Yeah, mine, too! Just lovely! It brings to mind "concours Porsches" that I was used to/owned long ago. I had a 1966 VW painted that green color, or slightly lighter shade.

Is the tub metal or glass? Fenders metal? Curious.
