When I was a boy our neighbours had one of these. It had a Villiers engine and the front wheel mounted on the steering mechanism. The engine had no reverse but that was no problem as the steering could be turned right round to give the vehicle backward movement. Starting the engine meant lifting up the bonnet, (hood) and putting your leg inside to kick-start the engine! I think the engine was only 197cc!

Coca Cola, back when it had traces of cocaine in it (it was cocaine free by 1929).

Before I was born my parents had a tandem with a sidecar for my sister. This is not them.
