BMW R50 With Steib Sidecar

On Display

In the mid-1950s, BMW plus Steib was considered the most desirable of all outfits for sporting yet civilised sidecar work. Allied to the BMW with its smooth, quiet, twin-cylinder engine and shaft drive, its pivoted-fork suspension at front and rear and its all-round excellence in engineering, was a quality sidecar with a very robust chassis and sprung, trailing-arm suspension of the wheel. Both motorcycle and sidecar were expensive by the standards of the period.
