« on: May 01, 2012, 03:15:25 AM »
Hello all.  Just curiou if anyone knows any good resources for a used or second hand sidecar for my bullet 500?  Not sure I can afford a new cozy for my bike and was wondering f anyone knew any good resources for used ones here.  Thanks.

Not off hand.
 You might could call CMW and see if they can put out a network call to their dealers to see if any have a line on a used one for you.

You could also try posting in the wanted section here also.

I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

I have also been on the look out for a used hack. I can tell you that occasionally you will see one on ebay or craigslist, usually it is someone selling the bike and hack together. However, they are scarce to begin with so picking one up second hand is difficult and can also be risky.. I am by no means and expert though, did have a cozy on my scooter which i picked up second hand and could never get the dang thing to ride right.

Okay, I have a complete rig off a 1997 Ural 1 wheel drive that I've listed in my signature. This bike has been 1 problem after another but never with the hack. I was thinking I could just repurpose the Hack for the Enfield but I need to find an adapter kit or some sort of universal mount. Anyone know any good places for such a thing.

I went down the used sidecar road a few years back.   For about a year I could not find one on CL or Fleabay.  Gave up my search for used and then I found an Cozy importer in Texas that could save me about $900 on a new car from the sponsers of this site.  Gave the guy a deposit and 8 months later no car and no word, called and was told they were on the way from India.  2 months later called and got a different guy and talked to him,   they had yet to order the shipment because they were waiting for 2 more deposits (and buyers).     >:(  

Got my deposit back, called CMW and they had a sidecar  delivered to my driveway a week later.  Bolted it to my RE and all is good.

I also experimented with a CJ sidecar (same as ural but with leaf spring instead of shock).   At the time I was tight on money so I hooked it to a Kawasaki I bought cheap.  Worked but the bike was rev happy (KZ650) and I just did not like the setup. Sold the car and bike seperately for a profit.    

If I had that tub still I would hook it to a Sportster 883 and then upgrade the jugs to 1250 for a few $100.   The sporty would be reliably, geared right (883s are geared lower that 1200s), parts are everyplace and it would haul ass.   Around here you can pick up a used 883 for about the price of a new Cozy if you look hard enough.

I have been lusting over the spyder T1. Is probably the best looking, light side car I have seen. IMHO. I think it will look great on my C5.
