As you might be able to guess from the name, Flexit sidecars were designed to lean with the motorcycle, yielding much better handling characteristics than a traditional sidecar rig. Approximately 167 were built between 1981 and 2005, making this a rare and interesting take on 3-wheeling.

The Flexit can be hooked up on either the left or right side and is capable of leaning 35 degrees in either direction. You’ll also get a disc brake, air shocks with onboard compressor, and an electric sliding canopy – not bad! For more information on (and a whole lot more photos of) this interesting rig, check out this site. Apparently, it also comes with the taillight from a Honda Accord.

The K100RS is said to be in very good condition with stainless steel brake lines, fresh filters, new wheel bearings, and ~22,000 miles on the odometer. The sidecar “has been freshly painted and upgraded with Brembo brakes, LED lights and USB power ports.”
