Google is not much help here.
The tank badge is bothersome, and the Lilac motors I find are much more BMW-like. This lump has some "streamlining" similar to a Victoria Bergmeister (which was a 350 V-twin, I believe?).

Geez, if that annoying woman weren't sitting in front of it, I might be able to see the entire bike and help you out.

Not a lilac. Lilac's had a motoguzzi style engine. Kinda like this:

Ernie, I already told you what that is over at CW.

That would be the second time. Don't forget it this time.

Well, I was just staring into space and suddenly I thought, "HEY! How can I help Carlo show off today?" Unfortunately, Mr AltF4 beat you here.

Sir, if you come back, might you also remind me of the name of that sidecar, also? The butter is slowly slipping off my noodle, and I'm hoping if I don't try to hide it, I'll get along better. (I could be wrong...)

You're more of a sidecar man than I am, but I'll take a wild guess that it's a Bender-Florin Sidevogn.

Something about that aluminum lump on the front of the mudguard.

No- a couple of sidecars have that- including Steibs. That's where the front fender attaches to the frame- the fender is hinged.
Actually, that might be a Steib LS200 since that's just a 250 bike. I've seen that flourish on the nose on another, very elegant tub.
