Berrien Buggy dealers can supply a Manx style fastback hardtop or
a tall rear top that allows people to sit in the back seat. They have them
in stock and ready as well as the sidepods. Either will fit almost any
Manx length buggy. The windshield must be mounted correctly for the fastback
top to hook into the groove on the front side.
These are only $199 and come in black leather look gelcoat! Very cool!
They look just like a soft top from a distance.

Subject: [dunebuggyarchives] MANX HARD TOP
Hey Dudes, I talked to Bruce a week ago & he said they're
concentrating on getting the rest of the Classic Manx kits done & the
hard top was not at the "top" of the priority list! The "NEW MANX" is
the next big project! It will have things like an 18 gallon fuel
tank, windshield defroster & heater, opening hood, folding
windshield, lockable storage areas, the speedo & gauges will be in
front of the driver, a stereo system, dash will be completely wired,
full roll cage, body mods will allow for larger tires & longer travel
suspension, a hard top & doors & a whole bunch more "improvements"!
He said the kit will sell for around $4000.00! It'll be interesting
to see! I know it's been a long wait, but I feel the Classic Manx
kits that haven't been built or delivered, will be worth the wait!
Bruce is a perfectionist & he wants each Classic Manx kit to be
perfect! They've had problems finding shops to produce the bodys &
sidepods, that share the same ideals about building a flawless
product! Last time I was at their house, Bruce showed me some
sidepods that looked great to me, but then he pointed out little
problem areas & such that he will not allow! Well, you know what they
say about artists! You people that are waiting for your Classic Manx
kits, Hang Tough, I think once you see your kit you'll appreciate the
attention to detail! Have Fun...ManxManiac
