P.S. I bought a russian M72 in the 1980s, similar to the BMW R 71, with the original sidecar, we had lots of fun with the
M72, whish, I still own it... https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/M72_Motorrad

Back then we bought two M72s from Poland, both with the original sidecars, price then about a little more than 2000,- german Mark
for one of the bikes.
Two young men from Poland drove the bikes over to Germany, their "licence plates" were handmade from a piece of black rubber,
inscribed with a brush in silver letters.
Both sidecar bikes were running quiet well, the M72 models are indestructible, they run even with cow piss and waste oil, built to last... :lol:
