looking for a complete rig

Hello all! New to the site. I'm looking to buy a complete rig, would consider just the side car if I can't come up with something within reasonable distance. I usually ride two wheels all year until the snow /ice becomes a problem but a new puppy has thrown a wrench in the works. I'd like to be able to take her with me but don't want to drive my truck all Summer. I'm located in Southern Connecticut, about an hour from NYC, right off I-95. Don't need a million dollar rig, just something dependable. I'll keep my eyes on the For Sale section also. Any help out there??

Try Ural of New England

Frankenzuki, some of us here enjoy steering guys to likely rigs, but you need to give us more to go on. First of all, what's your budget? Do you want something just for fun around town, or will you be going on multi-day trips? Want to stay on paved roads or do you want something that's gravel and dirt-worthy? Prefer a cruiser-style, standard-style, GS-style, Russian-style or what? Any preference about bike brand (your handle suggests you like Zuks) or country of origin? If not sure, start cruising the Craigslist listings, eBay auctions, and rigs for sale here, then take notes of stuff you like and stuff that turns you off. Then let us know. We can put our sniffers down and try to smell out some likely rigs for you to check out.

Drone, thanks for the reply. Looking for something to Cruise around town.. No multi-day trips, Not much around here for dirt / gravel roads . Would like to keep it under 5K but would consider spending more. Would prefer something turn key. Would rather ride during the summer instead of wrenching. Otherwise open to pretty much anything.

What bike are you considering converting? Probably best to get a turnkey and keep your present ride for a solo.


Have a nice GS 1000 Suzuki could possibly use that

Big discounts available on our Velorex sidecars. 562 Cruisers dropped from $3,299. list price to $2,850. 563 Tours from $3,599.list price to $3,050.


Ok, Frankenzuki, that helps a lot. Basically what we'd call a starter rig. Low cost, for around town, not a fixer-upper. This means, basically, an older, or less desirable rig, but something that runs well. I'll PM you when I find something. Do you know how PM's work? You need to go into "My Settings" at the top of the page, then tell the forum that you want to receive e-mail notifications when someone sends you a private message.

You may want to check out Soviet steeds web site They have gray list stuff for sale for all and black list for dealers .most people that own Urals also own other bikes & side car rigs. Urals at least 2007 or newer. Best bet 2012 or newer.i have a2013 Ural Tourist single wheel drive it will almost anywhere No problem. Ural of New England is good dealer they usually left over from previous years and has big stock of new.
