I saw an add for a 81 goldwing with a side car for sale hasn't run since last summer it is in a garage I called the guy and he said it has a rebuilt/salvage title and he bought that way. I was wondering if its worth buying? has 24000 miles on it. from the pics it don't look to bad.

Depends on the money, and if you want a hack. Jay

IMO way too much (money). The sidecar alone is worth $1k or so, and a decent running, good looking, well maintained GL1100 can usually be had for $1K to $2K (if you look around). Maybe you get lucky, but resuscitating an older bike can sometimes be more trouble than it's worth... again, just my opinion.

One question would be, was it running when it was parked? Another is what type of sidecar is it? The carbs will probably need to be cleaned. Hopefully all the hardware is there to re-attch the car back to the bike. Sidecars are a different animal than two wheels or trikes. It really comes down to you if you want it.
