SOLD - New home for 2012 C5 and sidecar
« on: January 20, 2014, 03:30:44 AM »
I find myself reluctantly having to hang up the helmet and send the sidecar rig to a new home.  Posting is here on Craigslist in Austin, Texas: http://austin.craigslist.org/mcy/4295498286.html

Edit: Direct email if interested mplayle13 -at- gmail -dot- com

Edit on 2/9/2014: Dropped the price and made the jackets and helmets part of the whole deal.  Updated the posts on craigslist and cycletrader.

Great looking setup, exactly how I would have done it.  Too bad I don't have the bread to buy it.   :(

I've really enjoyed riding it.  Just changes in circumstances and family obligations mean I won't have many opportunities to keep enjoying it.

Also not in the listing: the sidecar is equipped with a brake linked to the cycle's rear brake.  This lets the rig stop much straighter.

It figures, I accept that I have to sell the bike and get it posted on craigslist and CycleTrader in time for winter to return with a vengeance.  The "high" today in Austin, Texas was 46 degrees F sometime around 6:00 this morning.  It is now down to freezing: 31.7 degrees F.   ::)

Did a bigger price drop this time.  Beginning to really need to have it sell.  New price is $8750 (obo).

Another bump for the post to get attention.

So far the only interest has been a couple of wishy-washy tire kickers from the craigslist and CycleTrader postings.

Ended up getting wholesale from a local used bike dealer.   :(

At least they came and picked it up directly.  No more hassling with "tire kickers" or private buyers offering below wholesale.
