Deubel/Horner BMW sidecar

Max Deubel's BMW Rennsport sidecar
The scintillating Isle of Man TT action has got us thinking about sidecars. Not just the Ural kind, but the racing kind too. The elegant machine above is the BMW campaigned by Max Deubel—the ‘Sidecar Superstar‘—and passenger Emil Horner. Deubel was the four-times World Champion, from 1961-4, winning ten Grand Prix races. How cool would it be if one of the today’s leading custom builders created a modern version of this BMW sidecar? The picture, by the way, is not the actual Rennsport vehicle, but a model from the amazing collection of French Flickr member seeleynorton.
