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.
Purchaser must pickup or arrange shipment from northern New Jersey.

Any Takers yet...I am restoring a Honda GL1100 that I want to setup for a Sidecar Rig. Not much money but lots of time to rehab. Let me know, I can pick up if we can get it into my 2012 Jeep GC...Let me know, will watch thread for response.

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

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.

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.

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.
