    That's like winning the lottery ! It's probably worth 2000x that ! Good catch, dude.

    Send a picture to Barber. They might give you some info on the sidecar. Worth a shot IMO

    Congratulations to your daughter major score even at a higher price. Also Spitfire says a bubble like on the batmobile and he would ride the sidecar....well then he grumbled about machine gun mount.... maybe she shouldn't give him a ride.

    Congrats, great dad move!

    The red tape is insane these days, particularly when for tax purposes a foundation is involved. I’ve had to turn down a lot of major donations of equipment, as a lot of foundations now want you to effectively pay them to serve as a go-between.

    Congrats. I'd love a vintage scoot myself to pick up milk and bread, one day.

    It sounds romantic, but a Yamaha Zuma will accomplish the same task and is way more reliable with widely available parts.
