Quick Question

I am about to start the process of adding a sidecar to my '03 Heritage Springer, FLSTSI. I will probably have a lot of questions as this proceeds but for now I have just one:

Liberty or Motorvation?
Thanks,
Steve

Welcome to the slightly off-center world of sidecars, Steve!

I have no answer for your question, just here to say Hello.

Hi Steve, I run a Liberty on my FLH and have had it for a good number of years now. Haven't regretted a minute of that time!

Thanks for the advice. I'm going with Liberty.

You might also take a look at our Classic it is pretty much the same body style as Liberty but for less money and with less of a lead time.
Liberty is located only about 40 miles from us. If you can swing it why not come by and see both?

I'd go with Jay and DMC. 🙂

Thanks to all for the advice. Let the process begin.....

Hi Steve Ive got a Motorvation Spyder on my 2001 Heritage Springer and love
it (lead time 20 months).
I also have a DMC Classic on my 2002 FLHTCUI (lead time 5 months) great design and for my money the DMC wins not for the lead time advantage but a little better frame.
Liberty is good too just do not know lead times.

Our lead times are currently at 4 months, we are working on moving to a larger facility, should know more if the sale goes through next week. If we can buy the larger building it will allow us to add two more people in every department as well as bring powder coat and paint in house. With this we hope to get our lead times to under 6 weeks, the goal is 2 weeks for painted a few days not painted. Of course it will take time to find and train the right people and buy the needed equipment.

Again, thanks for all the advice.

I went with Liberty. Here in the Southeast (I live in Alabama, Roll Tide!) the few sidecars I have seen have all been Liberty. The only one I have seen at a dealership was a Liberty. I just could not consider a different brand without being able to see it.

Once the build actually begins I will start a build thread and post updates.
