I've been driving BMW sidecar rigs for 25 or 30 years...
So a guy finds out about me and wants me to teach him how to take care of, and drive a restored early 40's rig he inherited.

OK- I'm up for that. I actually drove one back in... 1975ish? What I need to know is;
What are the model names for these bikes- R75, R75M, M75?
How does the Hi / Low and reverse work?

Any links to good pictures / info?


I deserve a paper plate as strong as I am!

WWII era sidecar info?

Try the VBMWMO links page...search for "WWII" without the quotes...there are a couple of places to check out...


If you find other interesting pages, report back and we'll see about including them on the links page for future reference.
