Hi George

A very nice picture, of some very interesting machines.

They look a home made variation on the traditional 'motorbike and sidecar' (which I used to drive for a very long time), but I would have thought the width made them very difficult to steer left...
Good job the machines look so low powered, or else they could be lethal...!


Best Wishes, HFF, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!

Many thanks, Peter. I get the impression these sidecars are locally made and fitted - possibly in kit form. You're right, the safety factor doesn't bear consideration. I hope your weekend is going well.
