I'm located in Pennsylvania & price of a new one is not doable.

Wondering if any of you folks know of one for sale.
A fixer-upper is fine.
Wind screen and associated hardware not necessary.

Have you searched Craig's List? Every so often a cozy will come up on my local CL. Keep in mind if you find a combo an owner may be willing to split the pair and just sell the sidecar. Not a cozy but there's a light weight sidecar for sale on the Santa Fe / Taos New Mexico CL right now. I've looked at it and it has potential, it's a basket case with some extra parts so some assembly required. Also go to the Adventure Rider site, they have a forum called "Hack's", it's a very active sidecar forum and those guys are always posting what's up for sale all over the country, maybe that will pan out for you. Good luck!

So far as Craigslist & E-bay go, I've got those two covered.
There seem to be a lot of rocket knock-offs posted but I'm unsure about quality.

One more option for you if you have welding and fabricating skills, go the build it yourself route. I built the sidecar chassis for the Harley rig I posted here using parts from Claude Stanley Motorsports. Claude's is probably one of the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to any aspect of sidecars. He sells complete sidecars, that he builds, he can custom make just about anything you'd want and if you drop your bike off he'll do a turnkey build and installation. In my case Claude was willing to send me the parts to build my own along with one of his reproduction tubs in rough form that I finished out and painted. I ended up with a pretty nice rig for about 1/3 the price of a new one. He's located in Pennsylvania so he may not be that far from you, give him a call if nothing else he may have a line on a used Cozy that you're looking for.
