Identify this sidecar?

I'm shopping for a sidecar for my BMW R75/5. Currently have a Ural as well. I like the Ural sidecar but am looking around.

I have found this one for sale, but the owner isn't sure exactly what it is. He thinks an early Hannigan. Anyone know definitely?

This predates California sidecars. It was made by Spirit of America. It may be made from rotor molded plastic. California sidecars were made out of fiberglass and on a different chassis. The California version was called the Friendship one. Not sure if spirit of America called it the same.

You can not use "universal" type mounts on your /5 the frame tubing is to thin and the down tube is oval, not round. We of course make a mount which is included with all but our economy sidecars. The Sputnik at $3895 is our best bang for the buck. We can of course provide mounts for this S/A sidecar.
