Planning to sell my current rig, Goldwing and Hannigan classic sidecar, both in great shape. Very well matched outfit. bike has automobile tire on the rear and a modified triple tree. My question is; is it better to sell the rig as a unit or break it apart and sell separately? Thoughts and suggestions helpful. Thanks

Would be nice if you posted a little more info on what you have.
What year Gold wing, how many miles are on it? What do you want for it as a rig? You need to post some pics of it so somebody can see what it is they are buying.
What part of the country are you from.? Do those things and you may get a lot of suggestions from people in here.

There is a value in selling the rig whole Consider the cost and effort involved in mounting. Unless one or the other is really beat up and dragging the other back, sell it whole. Of course that's just my opinion, you'll hear others.

Thanks Al, both are in very good shape. Not ready to sell yet, and simply seeking advice at this point. My original thoughts were the same as yours. I think when i’m Ready i’ll just Post on line with photos and price. I know this is not the best time of year to sell a rig or motorcycle.

It's my understanding that while modified triple trees are beneficial for the handling on a sidecar rig, they can make the bike unstable on two wheels. To sell the bike and hack separate, it might be necessary to change the triple trees back to stock. Not worth the labor, even if you still have the original parts.

Point well taken. Yes a modified front makes the bike very difficult to ride as a 2 wheeler. Guess I have my answer. Thanks to all!
