wonder what sort of sidecar this thing was forced to lug around!

Or, at least, I assume that was what was going on with the leading link forks and very square front tyre profile.

I assume thats one of the mounts by the pillion peg, and they filled in the space to brace it.

The honda looks interesting and appears to use something similar to a 2CV wheel rim in rear,

This one will probably give you nightmares then as made from a whole 2CV apparently

but I would pay money to see someone ride that 2CV thing around a racetrack at speed. It would be hilarious for the few seconds it took to reach a corner....

The Munch Mammoth's go for really silly money now Nigel and assuming you can actually find one for sale! I love the engineering that went into them and the fact the rear tires of the time would shred due to the power!
