    Nice deal on that one, lots of extras and goodies, the three hooters girls come with it.....
    Tank under sidecar may reduce frame clearance but it would have to be looked at to see if and how much it does.
    W650's are nice bikes for sure look just like the old Triumphs but don't leak, start easily and don't shed parts while traveling the roads...
    If you can, grab it.....heckuva deal!

    American Spirit, Spirit Eagle model. Have one just like it! Nice price, mine was $750 plus motel/food/gas to Richmond VA, would have grabbed this one if I hadn't already bought one, about the same money.
    Nice lightweight car for bonnevilles.

    I've been following your progress from the sand and paint thread and thought about your car when I saw this on CL. BTW, nice job on the paint and at $750, you got a pretty good deal.
    Here's another one in Ga. that looks pretty good as an entry rig for cheap money.

    Digging those crazy rigs from OZ that Chris McArdle has been showing on the "Sidecars - Lets See Them" thread? The stuff right out of "Road Warrior"? Well, now's your chance to own a US version. Built by our own Claude Stanley, the rig has bells and whistles you wouldn't believe.

    For further info, contact me at sidecarsarge@yahoo.com.

    Bike is no longer for sale.

    Due to a progressing brain disease, I am forced to sell my 2003 Ural Tourist
    sidecar rig. This Ural is one of the motorcycles sold during the period when
    IMZ was taking over the importation and distribution of Urals in the U.S., and
    it one of the “CMSI” bikes. I purchased it new from the Wagners dealership in La
    Port, Indiana, new, in August 2003. Bike has been reliable and trouble-free
    for the last two years. Solid.

    Price is $7,000 and includes the trailer and all parts listed.
    Photos are big so that you can see the details, warts and all.

    21,000K miles.Drum brakes all around. 750cc, electric or kick start. Electric
    (Series 3) ignition. Spot-welded ignition rotor. Russian alternator has been
    replaced with the new Nippondenso alternator with adaptor. Retro valve
    covers (original stock covers included in sale). Two almost new Avon Triple
    Duty Sidecar tires (front and driver wheels). Radiator hose intake hoses have
    been replaced with reinforced aircraft ventilation tubing. Scissors jack (from
    a Volvo) included. Vetter Windjammer III mounted and a Harley Sportster
    boat-tail seat replacing Ural tractor seat and stock rear fender and lights (I
    designed all of this so that it can be removed and the original parts put back
    on if I ever got tired of it). Fairing has a seven-and-a-half-inch diameter
    Bosch headlight from a /6 BMW (with a Vetter headlight adaptor). Sealed, gel
    battery mounted between bike and sidecar. Barnett heavy-duty front brake
    cable plus spare. New headlight relays. Two main fuses replaced with modern
    automotive-style fuses. Battery tender. Heavy-duty motorcycle cover
    (brown canvas and huge). Stainless steel "Manic Salamander" Bar-end weights
    and cushioned grips. Power outlet on fainring with a second hook-up for the
    Battery Tender on the battery box. Hinged, pivoting mirrors (carbon fiber housings).
    Aftermarket no-seam mufflers, eliminated the crossover tube. Headlight on/off
    switch mounted on fainring. Motovation "night-glow" analog clock.

    Also included in the purchase is a Haulmark enclosed trailer, torsion bar
    suspension. Purchased new in August 2003 when I bought the motorcycle.
    Ramp-style rear door, no side doors. Seven feet wide by twelve feet long,
    ten feet high. Four tie-down points, one at each corner of the trailer. Four
    ratchet-style nylon tie-down straps. Aluminum with a steel frame. It has
    electric brakes with an emergency activation feature if the trailer breaks
    loose while being towed.

    The floor jack partially shown in the last picture is also included.

    I am willing to sell the bike and trailer separately, too. $4000 for the bike/sidecar
    $3000 for the trailer.

    Bike is no longer for sale.

    I dunno Richard, it kinda looks para-military and even looks hand built from the square edges on the car....I just keep thinking "Tank" when I look at it.....there are sure some strange things coming out of the woodwork lately.....

    How about this one. Same hack on a MG V7. A bit more expensive but I guess you get what you pay for.
