Haven't posted anything here in a long while. I'm out of school now for summer but I've been doing work to my little rebel and riding.
Anyways, found this ad today. $3000, which is quite a bit. However, this bike is crazy...just look for yourself. That sidecar has SHAG carpet. Description is pretty great too.
Says it was built to haul a 300 pound rider and 300 pound passenger. Anyone here into bigger women?
Bike is in Massachusetts.

I got this magnificent rig from a backwoods "engineer" up in northern Maine. I'm not sure what kind of drugs he was on, but they definitely enhanced his creativity.
The bike is a 1978 Honda CB750 that runs flawlessly. Starts right up, idles fine, doesn't leak a drop of anything. Electric and kick start. Carbs are perfect; clean, don't leak, no flat spots, jetted and sync'd nicely. Inside of the gas tank is pristine. Oil changed often. Chain, battery and brakes are newer. Custom 4-into-2 exhaust looks, works and sounds great. Everything on the bike works except for the idiot lights (disconnected) and the high beam (haven't looked into). Recently stiffened up the forks, which helps with the sidecar.
The sidecar and sidecar frame are homemade. The longer you look at it, the more neat details you'll find. The shag carpet and van armrests are obvious, as is the Packard hub cap. Look a little longer and you'll notice the custom trailing arm and shock, right next to the cool little step. There are lights all over it (all of which work). The frame is way overbuilt; it was built to handle a ~300lb passenger along with a ~300lb rider, so yeah, you and your old lady will be fine. It's also all removable, but why would you want to do that?
The whole package is awesome. I rode it over 100 miles yesterday, and to work today. The bike/sidecar geometry works perfectly. It's dead straight on the highway (it has cruise control and highway pegs so you can really get comfortable). It'll do 100mph, lift the chair, drop panties and do burnouts. I've ridden it all over New England and wouldn't hesitate to take it anywhere tomorrow. Be prepared for lots of waves and comments from weird old dudes.
If you want a sidecar, but don't want to spend $8k on a Ural made with WW2 technology and Soviet reliability, here it is.
Clean title in hand. Will trade for other cool motorcycles. No test rides, but you can hop in the chair and I'll take you for a rip.
