hi everyone. i wanted to know if there is any demand for used sidecars. i was looking at a bike with a california friendship2 seater sidecar. does anyone know what these might be worth. thanks for any help.
It varies around the country, and exactly what model and options it has.
California had two models advertised as 2 passenger, The Friendship 2,
and the Friendship 3;
The Frienship 3 is the most desireable. If it is in good shape and has the electric lean, convertible top, and disc brake it would bring around $3000 to $4000up here.
A FS 2 will be about $2,000.
If it includes ALL the mounting hardware, including the pieces that are bolted on the bike, you can add about $300-500.
Keep in mind that the California sidecars come with two different frames. A large one for the Goldwing and a small one for everything else. If you buy a Goldwing with a sidecar attached, your prospective buyers will need to either mount to a Wing, or find another frame. The company no longer makes them and has no interest in supporting those of us who own one. I have a Friendship 3. It is the nicest sidecar I've ever owned, (of seven!).
