    I'd be a liar if I said I haven't looked at the listing more than a few times.

    I do have a sister in Madison WI. But, she's a millennial so it would be easier to do it myself

    I reached out earlier today and haven't received a response. I just checked the listing and it has been deleted. It looks like someone got a nice bike.

    I hope it went to someone like one of us, a person who will enjoy it as is. At that price point, it brings out the "Cafe Clown Crowd" And no bike deserves the fate of flat black, exhaust wrap, and brown "leather" wrapped skateboard seats

    That's funny because I was telling my fiancee about it and how a lot of them are being chopped up to create what is essentially something that is only good for cruising around the neighborhood or for taking pictures of and she told me I should buy it. Oh well, I think I knew in the back of my mind that wasn't going to last long at that price.

    This is a 1977 R75/7 BMW that was converted to a sidecar bike, it has a leading link front end, 15 inch wheels specifically designed for sidecar use and a swingarm designed to fit the wide tires that it uses. Very unique bike.
    The engine runs great, trans shifts perfectly. The sidecar is a Watsonian brand that is properly mounted to the bike.

    This will make someone o very unique bike, it does need a good scrubbing but I am leaving it as is so the prospective buyer can see exactly what they are buying. I do have two new tires ordered and they will be included in the sale.

    Maybe its just the photo angle, but that sidecar looks really big.
