Got to love the "cover the engine" east coast registration laws. Looks like he backed into a UFO or something. I've never seen anything like that before. I guess it's worth asking on the manx site if this was an option for east coast buggys or if it is completely custom.

Figured I would do a screen grab so when the ad disappears this post will still make sense:

That is the rare rear cover for the Manx. I think Winnie said something like 5 where made

I saw an add on ebay once that had a similar cover.  The guy said they referred to it as a "diaper" back in the day:-)

" HOLY MANX DIAPER BAT MAN ", I THINK JAY HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD, POOR THING LOOKS LIKE IT NEEDS A DOSE OF PINACILLIN. I SEE WHY THEY ONLY MADE 5, THATS 4 MORE THAN I WOULD HAVE EXPECTED, I WOULD HAVE ONLY MADE 2 ONE TO S#&@ ON AND 1 TO COVER IT UP WITH. I HOPE WINNIE DOESNT SEE THIS, OR I WILL NEVER GET THE EMBLEMS FOR THAT MANX I HAVE !!!             Ken...................

The term diaper was actually from Bruce himself , he said with the cover the Manx looked like it had a loaded diaper :-)
By Jay H (X-20) (ManxVair CC) Date 2010-04-22 09:45
Oh man... that's too funny. The man himself thought it killed the lines of the buggy.

On another note... I thought mass was the most difficult on registration rules. I was reading recently that NJ was a PITA. I see this one is for sale in NJ. I wonder if all the pampers were sold to NJ customers. Hmmm!

My Buddy Vince T is from New Jersey, he bought that yellow tarantula ( TWEETY) I had, Hes a little over the edge and if he sees that diaper he might try to build one for the tarantula, of course in Vinces case it would be called a " DEPENDS " LOL.        Ken.............

If I remember correctly it was called a "bustle".
By Genom Date 2010-04-22 15:05
Yes, "bustle" was the correct term...and if there were indeed only 5 made, that is 6 too many.
