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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Now I know where my customer got the inspiration for the design we buolt for him. A Chang Jiang 750 with a BMW R60/5 enigne and a CJ hack with a Steib-like fender.

    This is a sweet rig that was at Sipapu a few years ago.

    We not only make mounts for the R1200C but we also make a new from billet ball joint mount for the telelever front end that moves the front wheel forward for lighter steering. As you know on the R1200C the ball joint mount forms part of the front fender as does our new part. $1200 and in stock.
