BMW R60 + Steib S501 (Roger Newark)

I bought my 1965 R60 in 1998, and 2 years later found a Steib sidecar for it, which I spent a year restoring. Having fitted the sidecar to the bike I ran it for a couple of years on solo gearing before finding a sidecar ratio bevel box. In 2003, through the BMW club, I was approached by Dunhill,the exclusive men's outfitters, who wanted to hire the outfit to display in their London showroom for the launch of a new range of "Sidecar” leather goods . The hiring paid quite well and following that they hire it again to take to Paris for photoshoot. They also took it to the Saatchi gallery in London for an event. Heady days.
