Anyone hack a BMW R1200C?

I'm looking for pictures of a BMW R1200C with sidecar. Especially closeups of the mounts. Thanks.
Regds,
Jim

I found one on sidecar.com forum. A 2003 BMW R1200CLC with Ural sidecar and plenty of photos.

And another specific to the 1200C

I did a searh on sidecar fourm and came up with many hits.

Hope that helps.

Dauntless has bolt-on mounts for the R1200C. Highly recommended.

Great bike to hack, IMO -- lots of torque, it'll barely notice it's a tug.

And if they don't have one in stock, one will be made to your specs.

Great shop.

Hacking an R1200C

Thanks for the links. I'm wanting to build the subframe myself. I've done a number of R1150GS subframes and now want to try my hand at this one. So if you have any pictures of a mounting or subframe for the R1200C please let me take a look. Thanks.
Regds,
Jim

Beautiful rig. And those were the pics I was looking for. I can only hope the rig I'm building comes out half as nice. I'm mating this to a Donghai sidecar though. Equally vintage looking though.
Thanks!
Regds,
Jim

That rig used to be in Asheville. I love that colour anyway, but it really set that whole thing off. Very tasty.

wasn't there pics around of some sort of BMW OE sidecar for the C. I think it had a bunch of really nice wood. Reminded me of an old Cris Craft boat. Retro & modern in one package.
