A 61' Servicar I got recently . Not for myself but for the business so it will go up for sale in the near future .

How Cool will that look done.
Pity I am under pressure to off load rather than buy. lol

Nah, She's to clever for that, she married me didn't she. :lol: :twisted:

From previous one's I've seen it's usually a rigid mounted shell and the seat area inside is often seperate . Supposedly made by George Barris but I can't find anything to either support or refute that .

The trike has recently had a $2700US new top end added . Needs battery , fluids , a clamp for the distributor , marker lights and a tune up . Possibly tyres also .

The rear wheels are Model T Ford and they just look the part . If I hadn't bought the Dyna I would keep it but I have limited space for toys these days .

Right hand gear change I think means an ex-cop model . I'll be seeing this one in the flesh in a months time when I'm back in the US .

Plenty of non original mods done to it... re: Front end.. boot/guards, rims, trunk, paint, etc.. but hey.. would be a sweet.. shop bike.. or promo bike..!?

I like the extra roof/trunk addition.. as it had me do the hmmmmm... wonder if it would fit on my 73 GE750... thought..!?

Either way.. who ever buys it.. will loose a lot of time.. when they pull up... as folks.. old and young.. love to check em' out.. and have a chat.. for what sometimes.. can be hours... LOL...

Also.. you don't see or hear of them much over here (I only know of two others in Qld).. so a very unique bike to have..!!!

Good Luck..!!!

The front end is mostly stock . Over length Duo Glide without the covers and with a wideglide fender .

Have had a few of the usual low ball offers and silly trades offers . Although one chap is serious enough to get a price on getting it restored in the US before it's imported . Although it is hard to keep a straight face when someone tries to convince you their 20 year old 883 is worth more then the Servicar .......

Must be the overlength front end that throw's me out..? And the fact the bikes been stripped down..!?

I'm a bit set in my ways.. and reckon they look better when close to stock..? I love that big back end on them..!!!

Or even better.. this one.. like mine..

I'd hate to even think what they'd be worth now a days..!?

Possibly in the 20 thou range..?

We did a mint Meter Maid model a few years back for a client . Thing was used but everything was there . That sold for $23,500 when the new owner realised that the Servicar would never go as fast as his Fatboy .

Did a beat up Ice Cream Delivery Servicar last year . It was in shocking shape and is in Tassie being slowly restored .

This one will be around the $12-13k mark depending on if the C Cab is sold with it .

I dunno mate . If a copper tried to pull me over on that I'd stop . Even if only to have a sticky beak . Not a bad effort .
