I'm Bill from RI. I recently acquired a Bandit/Bandito HP rig from Ray G also in RI. I also have a Moto Guzzi with an Escort sidecar for 3 years.
The old rig is way different than the hp one. Does anyone know how many of the Bandit/Bandito rigs were built?
thanks,
Bill Bassett

Bill,

Welcome

(just what we need, more yankies named Bill Big Grin Laughing Big Grin )

I don't know how many Banditos were made but I'm sure one of the other Bills up there does.

Mike

Welcome to the forum and welcome to the world of HP Sidecars. I know you'll love riding that Bandito rig. Big Grin Big Grin

Don't know how many were built, but I've got one of them here in upstate NY. I've seen pictures of 3 of them together, but certainly more were built - seems as though I've heard something like about a dozen, but not sure about that.

I think the silver one in the middle is mine, although that picture was taken before I bought it.

Your toybox (aka "garage") sounds sort of similar to mine - I also have a couple of Guzzis and "some BMWs".

It's spelled Yankees - with 2 e's and a capital Y, Mike. Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks for the welcome. I think almost everyone up in this part of the country is named Bill. It's simple, easy to spell, easy to remember and everyone knows who you're talking about.

I like driving the (new to me) rig. My other bikes have seen little use since I got this unit.

Nice pic, three of them together. Mine is blue like the one shown but I don't think that one is mine, No Hannigan label on the nose.

Bill
