Check out the Men & Motors Video above, the girls think they are fantastic to ride too!
Extremely rare to the market place this Grinnall BMW R1200C Trike.
It’s a proper factory built example of this super three wheel Motorcycle that can be driven on a Car Licence and Grinnall’s best selling model for us for nearly a decade. You don’t have to wear a Helmet when out posing on this fabulous boys toy either!
It has been serviced 6 times too even though it’s been little used by its only mature owner It will have a 12 month MOT before it goes to its new owner and a Full Service.
Based on the BMW R1200C cruiser range, it was styled by renowned automotive design engineer Steve Harper, his work blends perfectly with the styling of the R1200C and the finished product looks like a Bavarian original. The sleek bodywork hides a carefully designed chassis, hand-crafted in 1-inch diameter, 12 gauge steel tube. The Grinnall fabrication is powder-coated and bolts onto the BMW sub-frame and engine frame to make an extremely rigid structure.
A new CNC billet top yoke resets the steering geometry, ensuring smooth and safe cornering without shoulder wrenching effort from the rider. The R1200C is fitted from new with BMWs own Tele-Lever front wishbone. This system is ideally suited to a three-wheeled layout and one of the reasons Grinnall chose this motorcycle as our first trike donor. The R1200C-Trike is the easiest trike to handle and is ideal for beginners or individuals wanting an easy to handle machine. Other features include rear disc brakes with billet calipers and braided hoses and a sophisticated independent double wishbone rear suspension with in-board dampers and anti-roll-bar. Front braking is the standard 305mm BMW set-up.

MCN liked the Trike awarding it a 93% ‘grin factor’:
“It’s a laugh and can be very relaxing to ride. You get armchair comfort, for a start. OK, so you can’t filter through traffic and it’s slower than most bikes, but that’s not what the Grinnall BMW is about. With its comfort for a passenger and the added advantage of a rear luggage compartment, it’s great for touring. But that’s not really what it’s about either. It’s about being an individual. And that’s at the heart of why we all ride’. ‘Cleverly done’, they concluded, A party on three wheels!”
