Cisco Router running in bridged mode and acting as VPN endpoint

I have a router (router2 in the picture) that is configured to run in Bridged mode. All traffic from the client computers would need to go through router2 before hitting router1. I would like to configure router2 to function as a VPN endpoint for a site to site VPN.

How would I do that?

Why?

Why have 2 routers and bridge with 1 of them?

Because we don't control Router1, and therefore, I cannot config firewall, access list, or VPN endpoint on Router1.

Also, putting the Router2 (this one I can manage) in bridged mode allows me to drop in this router without the need to change IP addresses on client computers.

Well I would suggest that you do not run in bridged mode. Run router 2 in router mode, and configure router 2 with a DHCP IP pool on it.

In bridged mode you have NO control over tcp/ip traffic - you may aswell just install a hub.
