    This is a 1977 R75/7 BMW that was converted to a sidecar bike, it has a leading link front end, 15 inch wheels specifically designed for sidecar use and a swingarm designed to fit the wide tires that it uses. Very unique bike.
    The engine runs great, trans shifts perfectly. The sidecar is a Watsonian brand that is properly mounted to the bike.

    This will make someone o very unique bike, it does need a good scrubbing but I am leaving it as is so the prospective buyer can see exactly what they are buying. I do have two new tires ordered and they will be included in the sale.

    Also noticed the big sidecar right away. When I think about it tho I don't see any advantage for a sidecar to be small. You have the thing to carry stuff and a passenger so the more room the merrier.

    Why does every part of the engine appear really dirty except the block? Looks like a new block and cylinders was added.

    With all your /2 parts and now with extra storage space, you know you want to create the ultimate /2, which would require such a tank.

    You bastards.

    You’re all such a bad influence.

    (Helluva deal though for something I’ve lusted after for a long time. :D)

    Thank you, Pokie.
