16" BMW Vintage outfit project.. get your teeth into this one!

All the best and Merry Christmas, Billy Gilroy.

As you can see from the images everything will need a thorough clean as it has been in store for some time, I have not got cleaning facilities at the unit so you will have
to use your imagination a little. This is a project to be finished by the new owner.

New rolling chassis fitted new wheels, tyres and front hub, the rear being a BMW item.
Lockheed brakes front and rear.
Chrome moly seamless tubular construction brazed as is the norm for earlier sidecars.
Sidecar wheel as fitted but benefits from the makings for a mini wheel mount if that is your preference.
Steering damper is fitted.
Cross over shaft for the gear change is ready to fit.
Rear brake pedal is mounted inboard.
Alloy petrol tank, oil tank, swirl pot and breather catch tank all need a small degree of finishing.
There is also an alloy kneeler tray and chest rest which is a WIP together with a wheel arch.
Gearbox is of the later type (5 speed) which has the better improved selector mechanism.
Briefly the engine has been cut down as is the norm and is fitted with a dry sump system so that the standard pump feeds the engine and the
cam driven pump will be scavenge. The standard pumps on Boxers are more than adequate and I have never had an issue, they are similar in
capacity to a 2L Pinto engine.
The barrels are standard and there are 2 sets of Omega pistons with rings made special for this build.
The heads have been splayed as in standard form there is a 50 degree bend in the flow path. This makes for a much more efficient
carburation. They have also been twin plugged.
There is a dry sump sump plate (see images).
The ignition system is of twin plug design and built by Rex Caunt.
2 x 40mm Dellortos

2 x sets new 750cc Omega pistons.
There is a full set of fairings which are new, the sidecar wheel arch carries a fuel tank.
You will note that there is tape on the frame to protect the powder coat whilst dry building. Everything in the images go as a job lot.

Together with the images you should be able to make an informed opinion as to the quality of build.

Price is £5500 for everything.

I hope this is of help, kind regards, Billy.
All the best and Merry Christmas, Billy Gilroy.

Hello, I would like to know if it may be possible to ship to the US (New York)? It is very difficult to find any vintage style frames over here. Thanks in advance for your time. Best regards, Anthony.

Hi Billy
If you need any help shipping to the US I can recommend a company. Let me know and I'll email you their details.
Cheers.
John
