What are the "typical" layout dimensions for an HPS rig, wheelbase, track(center of wheel to center of wheel), and sidecar wheel lead? I realize that all of these can vary to some degree or other, but is there any consensus on this? It seems as if all the c.h.s rigs have a longer wheelbase to accommodate the front suspension layout. I'm curious about track width and sidecar wheel lead. Can someone jump in with some numbers?

Thanks,

Mike Lydon

The wheel base on mine, with chs, remained stock at 59 inches.
I am at 15" of lead. I think the next one will be a little more.
The width I am not sure about. I think center line to center line is 48 inches. The next one is going to be about 8 inches wider.
