    That bike might be worth $4000 realistically. Those Kozy sidecars made in India are not exactly super desirable. So the guy's asking price is maybe $2000 too high? Also, located at Ocean Shores, so even though he says "always stored indoors" I wouldn't be surprised to find salt air corrosion.

    I don't think Claude builds these. I think Bill Cozzi in NJ builds Cozy/Triumph rigs - http://cozzisidebysidecycles.com/

    ^ sorry I was confused.

    BTW, I thought Claude used Stroker's wheels. Those pictured do not look like the excellent Stroker wheels.

    The ad says they were removed from a 'freedom sidecars' rig.

    I think most sidecar people are a little confused :lol3

    I think it looks like potentially a decent price. It looks like it may be a "Unit LL" which is not my favorite, but still worth 2K......The Ural looks very nice and nicely painted (from pictures).....2K......If subframe is decent that's $750- ............Installing all that stuff would cost 1500 .......That leaves 4500 for the bike ....and someone else went through all the time and headaches......Assuming it has been well done and the quality is good I think a person could do a lot worse!

    I've been posting that for months he apparently doesn't get it or no ones made him an offer. The Unit front end is OK but they are not more modern forks with floating brake calipers and 14-15" wheels .
    The r100rt with a well attached Ural and Unit forks reasonably low mileage was at 7500 and sold that's where this one needs to be.

    Talk about unrealistic pricing. Salvage title F800GS with a plain jane DMC car and he's asking $15K! Also, he says the bike got the salvage title from "a few scratches." Not in Washington it didn't. The cost to repair the bike needs to exceed the blue book value of the bike for the bike to get totaled. After it's totaled it gets the salvage title. The only way to get a salvage title in Washington WITHOUT extensive damage if it's stolen, the claim paid, then later the bike is recovered. In this case, since the bike theft has already been paid for, the insurance company sells the recovered bike as salvage and the bike gets a salvage title. The damage to the sidecar is a separate claim handled under the "Accessories" coverage.

    not even sure what a decent price would be on it...9-10K?

    curious what you think the Goose Expo rig is worth over in spokane?

    part of me really likes it but the price seems a little steep.

    2010 Stelvio ABS I think should be worth at least $6000-$7000. An Expedition with subframe has a base price of $8500 before you start adding options. Not sure what options that one in Spokane had on it, but he had a nice set of metal panniers, an aftermarket seat, and the bike itself has a tall suspension that can be easily modified, shaft drive, reliable motor, decent power, and a car pusher. I don't remember what he was asking, but anybody can do the math. The only thing I don't like is that the 1st Gen Stelvios had a pretty small fuel tank.

    Sidecars are worth only what a buyers willing to pay and it doesn't seem to make any sense, once a buyer thinks one is exactly what he wants he'll pay more than he should. I'm currently a great example of that, the red K bike is fun, handles well is great in the twisties but its a 22 y/o bike and as much as a commie like myself hates to admit it the market works the new stuffs nicer :-)
