BMW "R26 with sidecar", 1959, Germany

The R26 model was launched in 1956 and represents the evolution of the R24 and R25, the first medium-displacement motorcycles BMW made after World War II.

The essence was the same: a "squared" single-cylinder engine and shaft drive, that now produces more power thanks to a higher compression ratio and a bigger Bing carburetor.

New suspensions was fitted at the front now using Earles forks and a new swingarm at the back.

The model collected a discrete success thanks to the engine toughness and vigor, that made a valid combination with a sidecar, a popular accessory at the time as you can see by the bike kept in the museum.
