A Vintage BMW R71 with A Sidecar



This vintage beauty was just parked there at Gasibu square one afternoon, begging to be photographed. If I got it right, I think it is a BMW R71 motorcycle with a sidecar. It was produced in the 1940s and has a horizontally opposed flat-twin boxer engine. The R in the type nomenclature stands for road, thus this type is a roadster (a motorcycle that is used for road touring).

Dear Brother
That's not BMW R71, that's BMW R25/3 year of 1955-1956, original seispan actualy is in the right, but that's already convert to the left.
