Up for your consideration is my 1970 BMW R75/5 SWB motorcycle with Jawa Sidecar.  Motorcycle manufactured in Nov., ’69.  Sidecar of unknown year.  Owned since April, 2014.  At time of purchase, motorcycle and sidecar were not attached.  Purchased with just a hair over 20k miles.  Put on approximately 5700 (and counting) miles on it during my stewardship.  I will continue to ride it until sold.

While in my possession, motorcycle (and sidecar) have received new tires/tubes.  Motorcycle has received multiple fluid changes (i.e. oil, rear end), tune ups, new clutch cable and re-wiring of sidecar light.
Not a show bike.  Paint imperfections, scratches and nicks.  Sidecar bracketry welded onto the frame of the motorcycle during my time of ownership.  Sidecar setup is fantastic – solid.  Works beautifully…  Seatbelt added to sidecar.  Locking rear “trunk” behind sidecar seat.  Slight tear in sidecar seat.
I adore this set up.  I absolutely love this rig.  I cannot tell you how many conversations I have struck up with random people while riding (and stopped with) this rig.  My kids loathed the attention we’d get from others but really enjoyed the rides; many rides given to family, friends and acquaintances young, old and anywhere in-between.  A lot of love and care was implemented to make this sidecar track right.  This sidecar rig is turn key – – doesn’t need a thing.
Motorcycle/sidecar is sold as is.  No warranties expressed nor implied.  Nothing else included in this potential sale besides the motorcycle and sidecar seen in the photos.  Motorcycle/sidecar listed locally – – I reserve the right end the listing early and at anytime for any reason.  Highest bidder wins.  I would expect a down payment of $1000 via PayPal within 48 hours of end of auction.  The remaining balance due within 7 days of end of auction and prior to pick up or delivery via cash or certified funds.  All funds must clear before the I release the motorcycle/sidecar.  I will assist with delivery as best as I can but the purchase price for the motorcycle/sidecar does not include delivery.  I do not have shipper to recommend.  Motorcycle is located in the 60646 area code of Chicago, Illinois.  If you are local, I may be able to deliver for a fee.  I reserve the right to cancel any bid at anytime.
Title in hand and in my name.
Please ask any questions that you may have; I will do my best to respond promptly.  Happy bidding.  I have sold a few motorcycles on Ebay in the past – – all happy buyers.  Ryan
