    Yamaha Venture with California Sidecar Friendship I Sidecar package. This is set up specifically as a Sidecar rig and is to be sold as a package. Includes an '86 Yamaha Venture Royale full dresser touring bike in very good condition with 1300cc V4 5-speed engine, shaft drive, AM/FM Cassette, rider-passenger intercom, 40 channel CB, Computer Air Level Suspension, rider back rest, Progressive springs front and rear, SS braided brake lines, 120k miles. Everything works! The bike has a Steer-Rite raked triple clamp for reduced sidecar steering effort and CANNOT be ridden solo (without the sidecar) as set up. The original un-modified triple clamp is included if you want to re-convert it to ride solo. Color matched Friendship I sidecar (circa mid '80s) fully integrated to the bike's audio package with a passenger remote control including CB Push-to-Talk and headset volume control. The sidecar has an upgraded seat and color matched upholstery in addition to a convertable top and side curtains.
    Seriously interested parties with cash only, no trades or barters..

    Does not make sense to me either. Maybe he tried selling them together with no luck? Is it a real Harley sidecar?

    Looks to be a Harley sidecar. I actually like the shape of the Harley chairs, I just find the bikes to which they are typically attached to be bland. Too bad I'm not in the market.

    Not a hack, but this part of the forum is also for 'coolio three wheeled vehicles" ...

    I nearly inherited one of these, a poo brown wagon, when my grandfather passed away. Wish I had taken it now, but at the time, i couldn't imagine anything worse.

    Car Magazine used to have a summary for every new car on the market in the back of their magazine. For these it said:

    For : Cheap, can be driven on a motorcycle license.
    Against : More stable in reverse.
    Summary : About as sensible as hopping.

    Nope. Now I've run bikes without front brakes before, but never a HACK without front brakes. The rear drum on a Triumph is not enough to safely stop a hack all by itself.

    Is that rope on the chair to use as seat belt? Very safety conscious....... At least no one will noticed if chair smacks into a wall......already flattened.

    I know of a 1963 R series (600 c.c.?) BMW with original Steib sidecar. Less than 2300 miles on the clock.

    Seller is asking $21,000 for it.

    I have been wanting to get in the sidecar game, especially an older BMW rig, but I have no knowledge of the potential value of such a rig.

    Can you give me your thoughts?

    Seems like the old / series Beamers command a premium price. I guess they are worth what someone will pay for them.
