78 GL1000 w/ hack
 
Hey guys,

I am trying to sell my pickup and it hasn't had a lot of interest yet, so I put up an ad in the barter section of craigslist. Somebody emailed me offering up a Goldwing w/ hack. My only experience (very little) with sidecar rigs is that I've driven my buddies Ural in a snowy parking lot.

What do you think about the attachment points and all that:

The Wing looks all right as much as you can tell from a couple of pics. The sidecar is an American Eagle Spirit , It is a really lightweight car better suited to lighter , say 650cc and under bikes.It's pretty outmatched by the weight of the Wing.
As far as attachment points , I couldn't tell much of anything from the pics. Best to look at it in person.

Frame attachment points look to be welded. This could possibly weaken the frame. It also dedicates the GL as a sidecar tug.

I think the OldWings like that from back when they were a muscle bike instead of a tourer are the bee's knees. I'd go for it!!!

+1 I was never happy with the handling of the GL pre-hack. Doesn't matter now! Plenty of power and very stable.:D Good luck!
