It may not make sense, and I would never spend the money and time to build it, but somehow knowing that this exists in the world makes me happy. BMW Sidecar with RX7 rotary motor - $14900 (half moon bay) image 1 of 7 © craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap (google map) 2002 bmw r1200rt VIN: WB1051406F0052160 condition: excellent engine displacement (CC): 1200 fuel: gas odometer: 24000 paint color: yellow street legal title status: clean transmission: automatic Rotohak - Custom BMW sidecar rig with 300 HP twin turbo Mazda RX7 engine in trunk of sidecar. Looks like a 2002 BMW 1150RT with a California sidecar but the BMW motor is a fake - just valve covers on the side of the faring which hides a 15 gallon fuel cell. The engine drives both rear wheels through a VW automatic transaxle, directly to the sidecar wheel and through a cog belt to the motorcycle wheel. Shifting is done with a twist grip on the left handle bar like a Vespa. Mike corbin did the seat and sidecar upholstery. Not for the faint of heart. This rig is very fast and a handful on hard acceleration. Under normal driving conditions it's a pussy cat and can cruise at any speed with one hand on the bars. Featured in numerous motorcycle magazines both nationally and in Europe.
