    Whelp, I was outbid. I randomly bid $5500 knowing there was no way the reserve would be met. I wonder what the reserve is? He seems pretty proud of it(it is damn nice). I bet reserve is over $10k

    Yep, one of my buddies has a raven. They are beautiful!

    Sent from the voices in my head, and transcribed by their drinking buddy.

    He is title skipping too, which MD does not like. They want your vehicles registered, even if they are not on the road, but visible on your property.
    Also, if it is registered it must be insured or there is a good sized fine.

    Here it is folks, my Velorex 562 sidecar, complete with clamp-on mounts. The car is not cherry, but is very solid, serviceable, and useable as-is. Wouldn't hurt to do a little bit of interior and wiring work, but the frame and car are in great shape - no cracks, etc. I did put a new tube in the tire. The wheel has a brake in it that works, although it was not hooked up on the bike it just came off of.

    This sidecar came on a Dnepr I purchased a year or two ago, and I've since found the correct Dnepr chair for the bike. Due to a parking crisis, this one is gonna go. You get everything in the pictures except the bike (and the dog, although there are days...). Sidecar and all mounting struts, clamps, etc to hang it on most bikes that have tubular frames.

    I'll float it out here on ADV for a week or so at $600. This is my low, low, no-dicker inmate price. I doubt you'll find another Velorex for this price that isn't destroyed. If no interest, it will go on CL, Fleabay, etc later. Located in Bend, Oregon and available for pick up at my house. I may be able to help with delivery to the Eugene area on one of my semi-frequent trips over there.

    Send me a PM if you are interested or have questions!

    Ive had a lot of fun with this but I want to move on to a bigger outfit. 81 Special with an 80 Velorex 562 car. I have owned it for a few years but just bolted the car to this bike last winter.

    Not your average XS. I built it with some kind of desert theme in mind I'm not sure what to call it. I put a new rear tire on it this spring as well a a new rotor/rectifier. Comes with a couple boxes of extra parts as well

    I ride it at least 3-4 days a week. Mileage is unknown, It came with two speedos. One said 14K, The other is 34K. Bike is far from perfect cosmeticly. It has some rust on wheels and could use paint. It lives outside because it takes up a lot of room in the garage but I will throw in the custom blue tarp I used to cover it in bad weather for free.[​IMG]

    Could use a little tuning . Since the weather has become cooler it has become a little harder to start but I am going to work on that this week. All said it would be a cheap way to get into a sidecar. I'm asking $1850 for the whole thing or I would sell the bike alone for $850.

    Thats what I thought. Thats my price before I tear it down this winter for paint and a little maintenance.

    Good catch. Maybe he was feeling a little left out when he took it to Starbucks.
