Why metal? Fiberglass done right is lighter and can work out much better. http://www.dmcsidecars.com/metal-vs-fiberglass-sidecar-bodies/
Why an R100GS? the R100GS and newer make better sidecar bikes. We of course have sidecars that come with bike specific NOT universal mounting hardware for every GS ever made other then the R1200HP2

im more confortable with 80's technology than the technology on the newer bikes. I know newer bikes offer alot, but maintaining them myself would be more difficult than the simple "fuel, air, spark" machines. As for the car, steel is just a preference, both aesthetically and gut-feeling. My 79 jeep truck was never on a roll-back, my wifes 2011 jetta tdi was on one three times. Thats not to say that the jeep never broke down, just that when it did I had the skill set to fix it.
