Fair Price ?

I know of a 1963 R series (600 c.c.?) BMW with original Steib sidecar. Less than 2300 miles on the clock.

Seller is asking $21,000 for it.

I have been wanting to get in the sidecar game, especially an older BMW rig, but I have no knowledge of the potential value of such a rig.

Can you give me your thoughts?

Seems like the old / series Beamers command a premium price. I guess they are worth what someone will pay for them.

$21k is pretty steep unless it's a really nice rig and all the maintenance has been done on the bike. For that kind of cash I'd expect a rebuilt engine/trans/final drive (with the slingers done) and Steib S500 sidecar. If it's only got 2,300 miles on it and it's been sitting for a long time the price should be a lot lower unless it's been extremely well preserved.

By the looks of the photos it appears to have been neglected, at least for the short term.

I appreciate your input very much.

Judging by the riding position the operator should be able to drag his knuckles to slow the vehicle unless he's got a banana in one hand !

R1150GS Sport

Not a hack yet but Foothills in Denver has an R1150GS Sport for sale. The Sport is the 2003 only non ABS model with the Adventure 6th gear and makes a really nice tug. No affiliation just posting a nice tug, at least it works well for me.

76 BMW left hand rig.
15" wheels
Fully adjustable suspension
Lots of custom parts
2/1 exhaust
Will work with any airhead motor and transmission
Very dirty











3500.00 with tank and seat, 2500.00 without.
You couldn't buy 15" wheels and a leading link for this price. Put a motor and transmission in it or part it out.
