6-20-17 Update: Tim Huber notes that this bike is still for sale, but now with a $1,500 discount. Find it here on Craigslist, still in San Francisco, California.

The last time this race rig competed, it won the sidecar class of this year’s Pike’s Peak Hillclimb. Previously in 2016, it competed in 4 other races and it has placed either 1st or 2nd each time. So if you’ve been looking to get into 3 wheeled racing, it’d be hard to go wrong with this.

This is a mid’90s design built by Shelbourne. Formula 2 (as utilized in the Isle of Man races) feature 600cc engines, but the US has different rules so this was given a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 motor. Power is now between 170-175hp.

Find this racer for sale here on the team’s website for $12,000 or best offer – I believe the rig is in San Francisco, California as that’s where the team is based.
