OK, here is your chance to become a hero, get a Stieb, a original, from the 50’s to annoy your spouse, wow your friends and give you another project.. ALSO HAS THE BOOK…Parts are available from Benchmarks works, Sturges, MI

 my  1969 BMW R69S.

The Steib Sidecars have been  specialy built and designed to be used with all early BMW?€™s. The S-500 series will fit all BMW Motorcycles from 1950 to 1969. It will fit with no modifications to the following BMW models : R51/2. R51/3. R67. R68. R69. R69S. R50/2. R60/2. It also can be used for later BMW of the /5. /6 and /7 series with the use of a special subframe.

I have seen some Steib S-500 Sidecars attached to other vintage motorcycles as NORTON. TRIUMPH. URAL. CHANG-JIANG and many more


Heck, I don’t know what it is worth but there are all of the arts and new pieces for the trim. The Aluminum is in good shape, and the car is complete including the seat . The only Part that needs fixing is the panel under the luggage compartment, a straight piece of metal welded in < ( I got a price for $250)

Also happen to have a R69s that it fits on, at this time it is 19K, what a great combination, TWO Original, that go together.

So, I think it may be worth about $4,000 USD as it is a easy restoration and original, Yes it has a number plate on it and it says it is a 500 and the date is 1952.. IF you want me tor weld, and restore it, I can do that for a price.

Few miles on speedo, brand new, Redo by Bob’s BMW, My computers keep eating my videos of it running. Starts first kick. Was stored in Heated garage for 12 Years, when owner got the bike from Bob’s BMW, he was not able to operate the bike easily due to new engine stiffness and he had no hills to start it. So he let it sit., I got it along with a Non-restored R69s and a Steib Side car (500). The R69s Non-restored has been sold..and is living in and around Bucks County PA. To get the machine running, on the restored one, simply required cleaning the carbs, cleaning the tank, removing the heads and cylinders to check all clearances and torque setting. (Everything in the engine was new, pistons, rings, valves etc.. I also have a lot of the documentation from BOB’s BMW showing all of the parts and the rebuild)

I keep riding the bike and the miles are going up, but as I have many bikes, this is not a lot of mileage that I put on. Currently I am having the tank repainted as there was a defect from storage and have installed digital turn signals. be stainless, but they are new along with the mufflers, rims, spokes and almost everything, I have documentation from Bob’s BMW showing the service charges and the many of the parts.

THE Steib Side car. For restoration. It is available Is $3,000 too much?, Than make me a offer. It sure would look nice on a R69S, a real head turner. Click below to see a sample.
