Help identifying articulating sidecar frame

Hi, I have recently acquired a sidecar frame (only) along with two Goldwings that I have since sold.  The frame is articulating, with the rear mount connected to the wheel via a tie rod.  There are adjustable stops for the articulation.  The rear of the tub sits on a leaf spring but the wheel is not sprung.  It once had a custom aircraft styled fuselage like a WWII bomber, which was very cool but is long gone, per the previous owner.

The frame is sturdy and professionally made. It doesn't appear to be a home-made but one never knows as there are some talented people out there.  

There are no names or numbers on the frame.  I don't have a tub for it.

I am probably going to sell it but have no idea of its value. My current two bikes, a '13 Multistrada and '82 Turbo Suzuki GS1100E would handle it fine but I think it belongs on a Goldwing as the mounts are already set for it.  I kept it because the Goldwing buyer had no interest.

I imagine this is much better than the non articulating type, Years back I owned a 1951 BMW R51/2 with a Dneper body that I bought in Greece, and it was a bit of a handful to ride, but fun.

Hoping the images are visible.  Thanks in advance for any info!

Thanks Dave, appreciate it.  Trying again, I think photos too large and post deleted.
