Was told manufactured by Vern Industries Nebraska Dark blue fiberglass. Tub is shaped similar to a '80s Corvette. At least I think it is but am not an expert. Has a leaning unit. Bought a few years ago at a parts swap. All parts..windshield, covers, frame, wheel, etc. present. Disassembled so I could load into my pickup. $1200 (paid $1400). Lost interest. Maybe some one can bring it to life once again. I can email pictures. Don't know how to ship it.

Jay,

We welcome your ad and wish you good luck with the sale. We do have a few rules about ads and yours is ALMOST OK. We need you to ad the location of the item for sale. as you can imagine, shipping can be a big factor when you're talking about something as big as a sidecar. Please add the location to you ad or it will be deleted.

Aside from that, if you can't post the pictures yourself, if you send them to me at Al@AlOlme.com, I can post them for you. Pictures make things listed here sell faster!

The sidecar is located in Columbia City IN about 20 miles west of Fort Wayne.
I'll take pictures and email it to Al Olme as soon as possible.

I can't find a Vern industries sidecar company on Google. Jay or anyone else know about them or this hack in particular? Size of the car or what size bike it was intended for? Fiberglass body? I'm kind of up in the air between using my Honda Shadow 750 or Valkyrie 1500. Ive no experience with sidecars but looking to get started inexpensively. Don't mind a road trip

Valkrider that would be a sidecar manufactured by the late Vern Goodwin, Lincoln,NE. Put Vern Goodwin in your browser and do a search you'll find info.

Mike, Your 750 would pull this sidecar easily. It is fiberglass and what I'd call small to mid size. Vern's sidecars had a distinctive feature that you may or may not want to use. Vern used rapid acting linear actuators to lean the bike toward or away from the sidecar for very fast turns. It scared the bejezus out of me but he could ride like a demon. You could use that mechanism as a camber adjuster if you wanted to. Vern made a good quality sidecar and was very highly thought of in the community. He was a member of the USCA and a great guy. This sidecar appears to be one of his "Good 1" models.

Thanks Al and Sidewise. Sounds like Mr. Goodwin was a very respected early adopter and developer of technology. I mentioned I just got interested in sidecars. I've read some but remain profoundly ignorant about them. Never been in one or really had an opportunity to see a rig up close. Don't understand all the nomenclature and the specifics of attaching to the bike remain a mystery. Can ANY suitably sized car attach to ANY bike? It sounds like it might not be a good size match for the Valkyrie. The linear actuator doesn't sound like something a novice rider would want. It sounds like you are saying it isn't necessary to use it and it can be left off or at least inactivated. I assumed the long device with what appears do be a motor on it was a " lean control". Or, is that the linear actuator? What is the device that appears to be a motor mounted to the inside of the wheel hub? Does the car have a brake and if not, is it possible to add one. Would I need to purchase mounting hardware (bike specific?) in addition? My idea was to get an inexpensive car for the 750 then after developing some skill and deciding if I want to continue, upgrading to my Valkyrie for longer trips, possibly with same or larger car. Sorry about all the questions. I am trying to find someone in the area to talk to but it seems I'm not in a hotbed of activity. Regards, Mike

The overall length is approximately 6 feet.
The overall width is approximately 3 feet.
The wheel is 13 inches.
Does not have a brake.
12 inch eye/eye coil over shock.
Storage behind rear back cushion.
Intended to attach to my daughter's Harley softail.
Intended to purchase necessary fittings from DMC.
It is a nice looking sidecar.
Its body style is not common.
But this sidecar and its project were no longer an interest.
Thank you for looking.

Thank you for the info. I can see it's a shock now, the wires in the picture confused me and made it look like an electrical device. I'm probably better off with something a little more turnkey. Good luck with the sale.

Is this a LH or RH mount sidecar?

The pictures look like a LH mount.

Thanks,


Ken
