Collector’s Item With Sidecar


Now and then, one can see classic motorcars on the streets of Mallorca, most often, a Sixties FIAT 600, a Thirties Mercedes or a Twenties Citroën. Sometimes, one can see a Forties Triumph, a Seventies Rolls-Royce or a Fifties Chevrolet. Classic motorbikes are rarely on the streets but, now and then, one can glimpse a Fifties Norton, a Sixties Triumph, a Seventies Harley-Davidson or an Eighties BMW but, that’s about it. Old mopeds or scooters are more frequent on Mallorca’s roads, such as Moto Guzzis, Mobylettes or Vespas, but again, few and far between.

You can imagine my surprise when I saw this beautiful 1938 BMW R-71 at the Fira del Tardor in Montuïri the other day. The bike plus sidecar was not driving on the road but was purely exhibited for the enjoyment of the Autumn Fair visitors. But still, a joy to behold.

The photo was taken in Montuïri, Mallorca, Spain. The date: December 7th, 2008. The time was 12:45:04.
