I see theses bikes from time to time on "the auction site" but have never heard any real reviews from people that own them.

If you mean the guy from who I posted that belly tank sidecar earlier, it's Jochen Ratjen (Hamburg,Germany but since a long time Stockholm,Sweden now) Tha bike was called "Belzebub" and Jochen had a similar "devil's beard" ! Here is a pic, without the sidecar though, this was 1996...
Met Jochen and the bike this summer in sweden.
Bike is very well build and Jochen is kind of a nice guy!

Not exactly. Flxible was a sidecar manufacturing concern, moving into buses after the First 'War to End All Wars'. The sidecar chassis were patented, and produced from about 1914 until the mid-Twenties.
History here.

The Boozefighters come in only due to an article in EasyRider mag sometime in the 80's. Two BoozeFighters had combos and were caught by a photog in Sturgis. Nowhere in the article did the two claim manufacture of the sidecar, though the pair did mount and tune both. Bikes were J or JD Harleys.
