Hello everyone!! I've been researching the internet and creepin spyderlovers for a few months now. I was reading through the 4sale section last week and finally found my deal! I saw a 2012 RS with 680 miles, white, ISCI handbrake, riser, and extra seat for only $13,000!! So I pulled the trigger yesterday and drove round trip for about 14 hours with my brother in-law and trailered it home. I just ordered my web boards and ordered a smoothspyder backrest that I can use while I am by myself and my wife can use it when she rides with me. I haven't decided on the setup for my wheelchair yet though. I like the way the chair and bike looks much better when it is stored on the actual back of the bike. However, I think that with my wife being a semi-regular passenger, I am going to have my father in law make a "folding chair hanger" for lack of better terms on the off-muffler side and just use my spare folding chair as my new ryding chair. I have alot of other custom things in store for the future, but for now I am simply getting the standard comfort and safety items i need to enjoy the new ryde. I just basically wanted to poke my head in and introduce myself and to ask fellow chair ryders if there is anything they wish they could have or wish they would have done different. I want to do my best to get it right the first time!! Heading out now to take some backroads back and forth between a huge church parking lot where I can get used to my entirely new way of ryding with the wind in my hair. This forum has and is a great help in getting me ready for my spyder, but now its time for my spyder and I to get to know each other. Happy ryding everyone!!

Im wanting a setup pretty much like that. I found a company called TRI R Fabrications that makes a setup similiar to that. Also considering making my own "hangers" that I could simply attach the chair to from the side then fol dout of the way when not needed. Like to pegs coming off the left back side about a foot and a half long and curved at the end. Didi you make that yourself? Also, is there anyway I could get some close up pictures of it to add to my idea bank of what I might make? Thanks in advance for any help

Check out my profile, there are pics there. If you need more info, let me know.

I worked with a Mechinist to build it...no plans just designed as we went.

thanks. Some set ups are connected to the swing arm. Mine isn't. I didn't want the rack and chair swinging up and down. It is connected to the driver's peg area and is cantilevered back. Also, check out the "key" that is around the back of the swing arm. It is a nylon piece that allows the swing arm to move up and down while it keeps the rack from moving left and right.
