Description BMW SIDECAR OUITFIT LUS946V

THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL R80/7 OUTFIT.
BOUGHT NEW AS A SOLO IN 1979 THEN CONVERTED INTO A MOTORCYCLE COMBINATION BY THE OWNER AND CW (BMW) MOTORCYCLES, DORCHESTER. THE OWNER CARRIED OUT MODIFICATIIONS TO THE CZECH  MANUFACTURED VELOREX SINGLE SEAT SIDECAR WHILST THE BMW ENGINEERS REMOVED THE PISTONS AND BARRELS REPLACING THEM WITH R/100 UNITS THEN REPLACING THE ORIGINAL 800CC HEADS. THIS WAS DONE TO GIVE THE OUTFIT MUCH MORE TORQUE, WHICH IT HAS IN SPADES. THE FRONT FORKS WERE REPLACED WITH EARLES SIDECAR STEERING WITH UPGRAGED DISCS.
I FIRST CAME ACROSS THE OUTFIT IN 2006, IT WAS IN USE BUT IN A SORRY CONDITION (SEE BEFORE AND AFTER PICS) AND WHEN I LEARNED ITS HISTORY AND DID SOME RESEARCH I KNEW I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE IT AND RESTORE IT TO ITS 1979 CONDITION.
THE COMPLETE OUTFIT WAS STRIPPED DOWN TO THE LAST NUT AND BOLT AND THE FOLLOWING WORK CARRIED OUT.
PAINTWORK BY DOUBLE M RESTORATIONS AT WOOLAVINGTON.
MECHANICAL/ELECTRICAL WORK BY BMW SPECIALISTS JAMES SHERLOCK AT NORTH MOLTON.
TRIMMING BY PARSONS TRIMMERS AT SPARKFORD.
WHEN CW (BMW) ORIGINALLY BUILT THE OUTFIT THE WORKSHOP MANAGER WAS WALLY (A KEEN SIDECAR RIDER) AND HE  IS STILL THERE AND WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE ME WITH VALUABLE INFORMATION.  THE ONLY DEPARTURE FROM ORIGINAL WAS THE ADDITION OF A SAFETY CRASHBAR ON THE FRONT OF THE SIDECAR AND THE TOPBOX TO STORE OUR HELMETS. ALL OTHER FEATURES ARE AGE RELATED TO THE PERIOD. THIS WAS NEVER INTENDED TO BE A CONCOURS OUTFIT BUT IT ATTRACTS ATTENTION WHEREVER IT GOES. THE PERFORMANCE/ACCELERATION IS IMPRESSIVE AND CAN SUPPRISE MANY CAR DRIVERS WITH ITS TURN OF SPEED. I HAVE RECEIPTS FOR THE CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF MECHANICAL WORK CARRIED OUT WHICH AMOUNTS TO THOUSANDS OF POUNDS. THE PAINT COLOUR IS AS PER THE ORIGINAL BMW PAINT CODE.  WHEN PURCHASED THE ODO METER WAS SHOWING 6,800 MILES BUT THIS HAS NO RELAVENCE TO ITS CURRENT CONDITION SO I HAVE NOT CHANGED TO UNIT.
THERE IS NO 'BOOK VALUE' FOR SUCH AN OUTFIT WHICH IS WHY I HAVE DECIDED ON AN AUCTION WITH A RESERVE PRICE. SO WHY AM I PARTING WITH IT HAVING SPENT MUCH TIME AND MONEY. WELL ITS ALL ABOUT AGE AND HEALTH AND WE WILL BE SORRY TO PART WITH IT.
ALL ENQUIRIES WILL BE ANSWERED THANKYOU FOR VIEWING.
