On the trailer is;
-a 1969 BMW R60/2 with a Hollandia sidecar. My understanding is that Hollandia bought out Steib and this is a copy of the tr500. Supposedly, parts are interchangable between the Setib and Hollandia (hopefully). This rig has the "S" transmission, if that means anything.
-a 1957 BMW /2 conversion. It's got a VW engine.
It has the "sport" tank, I think it's called.
In the bed of the truck is;
-a small box of goodies.
-a pair of Wixom side bags and a Wixom top case.
-a Wixom fairing with lowers.
-an Avon fairing with lowers.
In "the mail" is;
-a Hoske RS4 39-liter tank.

After tons of emails, the guy wanted $X amount for the sidecar rig, plus shipping
. Too rich for my blood, so I gracefully tapped out.
A couple weeks pass, and he emails me out of the blue, telling me he has to make space. So, he lowered the price $500 and threw in the /2 conversion and all the goodies/fairings/bags, and he'd meet me half way between Missouri and Texas.
I didn't get the worlds best
deal, but I got a good
deal on what I wanted and we're both happy.
Now, who wants to donate to the cause?
Oh, and to the road surfaces of Oklahoma:
In Missouri, we have signs that say "Bump ahead" or "Rough Surface" if there's something noteworthy coming up. I think Oklahoma should
have signs that "Smooth road ahead" if it weren't for the fact that there is no smooth road
