I'm not sure if you remember me, but I posted many months ago to say hello and ask for advice on getting my '66 R60 running. To make a long story short, I found a local expert and paid him to go through the bike and make it safe and roadworthy. It's running great now, and I really appreciate everyone’s advice.
I have another question. I have a Jawa sidecar that is in extremely nice condition, and I don't think I will use it. Does anyone know what it is worth? I bought it with the bike, and I have $1,300 in it.
As always, your comments are appreciated.
Without seeing it, I'd guess around there, up to $1800.
I would also ask that question at www.sidecar.com
It could help if you posted photos of it.
I suspect that your sidecar is probably actually a Velorex, and you might do better if you sell it as such.
I don't know about in the States but over here, apart from Steibs, sidecars don't fetch a lot unless really nice, best idea is as Jeff said post some pics.
... I have a Jawa sidecar that is in extremely nice condition... Does anyone know what it is worth? I bought it with the bike, and I have $1,300 in it...
A new Jawa Velorex 562 costs about $2,600 but as I recall it will not bolt up to a /2 and requires generic frame clamps. See Side Strider at http://sidestrider.com/velorexpics.htm or the Wark Shop at http://www.warkshop.com/sidecars.htm.
The vintage Jawa Velorex 560 does fit the /2 and a perfect 560 should be worth more than a new 562.
... It was attached to my /2 and has all of the mounting hardware....
But how was it attached? Did it attach to the original mounting points leaving the frame un-marked, or did it use clamps?

So? Did you sell the sidecar?
