    I believe that the moderators still loathe, abjure, and despise links to eBay listings - so I'll just sort of casually mention, quietly, out of the corner of my mouth - while appearing to be reading 'GSPOT"

    PSSST! Hey Buddy - there's a pretty well sorted-out BMW F650 (year2000 Funduro, Aprillia manufactured, with carbs) with matching Velorex 562 rig up on eBay for the next two days.

    The bike has reasonably low miles (under 10K) and the install looks competent, although I don't recognise the subframe used. and am slightly puzzled that the installer chose to mount the steering damper on the bike's left side, rather than the more typical right-side placement where the chair protects it.

    The bid price is a bit stiff, but not unreasonable for a very clean rig in good mechanical shape that's been sorted out.

    I've gleeped some pics and rehosted them, not very big, but the rig does look nice:

    Wife Katherine has put about 15K on our F650/Ural combo, and it's been a stone reliable city commuter with realistic pretensions to running the super-slab (with the Ural's windshield folded down I've seen 89 MPH on the GPS, and cruised comfortably in the high 70's for several hours at a time). With the lighter and more areodynamic Velorex, this should be a decent performing sidehack combo.

    Our bike now has clocked over 50K miles, about half those pulling a 275Lb sidecar, I finally replaced the clutch last month, but it feels like it's willing to go another 50K.

    With all of the folks muttering "I've just GOTTA find a hack fer to carry the dog, the beer, and the ole lady (not neccessarily in that order, sometimes the beer comes first, and sometimes they can ride together - if your dog drinks beer ....) someone should give this rig a happy, new home.

    Cheers

    Jim

    I have no affiliation with this bike.....

    I was at Velocity Motors in Richmond, VA looking at Urals. They have an Arctic Gear Up available, although not advertised on their site.

    Apparently they've advertised it on the Ural board as well.

    Don't know any info beyond that, although since I keep seeing folks drool over the though of owning one, I thought I'd pass it on.

    It's a well known fact that the Arctic GearUps are by far the toughest ones out there...:ricky

    Most of the other forums don't allow CL or Fleabay links in or FS outside of Flea Market.

    Since Hacks are a small and sort of specialized portion of the ADV continuum, I've been leaving them intact, but there are increasing number of those kinds of posts & putting them in one place seems like a good idea to make it easier for a hack pilot (or potential one) to find them.

    Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I'm going to merge them into this thread unless the thread has opened to a discussion.

    Please help me out.

    Thanks. Ace

    Almost. Everyone knows Nato-Camo Gear-Ups are tougher and prettier, too.

    I know where there's a 2001 BMW K1200LTC with a Hannigan Astro 2+2 sidecar rig. Looks to have pretty low miles. It's listed on Portland's Craigslist with photos.

    I just posted my newly uncrated but several years old sputnik sidecar on ebay. A good dual sport hack
    I picked it up a few weeks ago while searching for a hack for an old cb750 I have. I really wanted something a bit smaller /lower but got a good deal on this and ended up bringing it home.
    Check it out on ebay and if it's something you're interested in make me a reasonable offer here. Would also consider trading for another hack

    Even if you can't do any long trips with it, there's nothing that says you can't just ride it around the neighborhood!

    I've got the Ural Retro for that. It would be a waste of a good high-speed rig that someone could put to use for what it was designed.

    I think that was an old ad. The guy ended up selling it on Ebay for like $480 about a week ago. In fact, that link doesn't work anymore.
