Since I have received no interest from people on this forum I'm going to post this on Craig's list. Can one of the knowledgeable members suggest an asking price? I’m not particularly interested in extracting top dollar. I mostly want to get this out of my garage before winter if possible.

Purchased in the early 1970s and stored in the basement since. Submerged in hurricane Irene. I believe everything is intact, except one snap for the tonneau cover.
Best offer.
Purchaser must pickup or arrange shipment from northern New Jersey.

Rob,

That tiny Spirit is not enough sidecar for your Oldwing. Look for a used Velorex or larger [preferably larger].

Of course, this is just my opinion, you'll hear others.

I am new at this so all opinions are welcome.
If you see or hear of a Hack that would fit well to my GL1100, please let me know.

I have that same one on my bike. Good size for being so lightweight. It looks like it has upgraded mounts, which is good because the originals were purely for aesthetic reasons.
Good luck with the sale

Hi Gene,
Do you still have it and how much were you asking for it.
Thanks,

I am interested , but I have an IRBITZ, too heavy for R60/2 (to me) to sell/trade before getting another. IRBITZ is in excellent condition
with new parts and army green primer. I tried to send RobsWing photo but don't remember how to do it.I am not even sure whether the message went to him.mmmm
Where are you? Ship cost is a factor to overall cost.
The COZY looks to need elbow grease, TLC, prob bearings and tire and paint. Looks good to me. I've worked much worse stuff to restore.
If I had $$$$, I'd buy a STEIB for the R60/2. Your 'not getting top dollar' is encouraging.

Jon Thornton .. I can send photos in reg. email easily

I'm in northern New Jersey.
The shell is in very good shape. The rig has very few miles on it.
But it was underwater for about 6 hours after hurricane Irene. So you'll probably want to look carefully at the wiring and the suspension.

My apology if I have already replied to this message. I received a couple of messages prior to the holidays.
Yes, I do have the rig. The price is best offer. See the thread for recent posts.

I am interested but I need more information to set up U-Ship. I did a 'guess-timate' estimate which came to $450 from zip 10956 to 36532.
I do not know your city or your actual zip code.
I will call if you send your phone #.
You can use my email address found on my FORUM profile page to send your phone number to me.
I prefer to use PayPal for the transaction if a deal works out.
I found that the Spitit of AMerica units sold new for $300-$400 back in early 70s.

$4.00 an hour was pretty good wages in the early 70's, too.
