Beaut, Ship-shape and Bristol Fashion. A Scott regularly visits the bike shop in our yard, nice looking bikes.

For those that think a Scott is a bit fancy, here is the same idea on a Ural/Dniepr, with matching teardrop trailer.

Shame it doesn't have wings.

I am not too sure about how suitable a two stroke Scott is for pulling a side boat?

This is more like it........................A proper sidecar outfit.

Very nice Ural/Dneipr combo, but it has to be said that when a bike has so much outboard it occupies almost as much space as a camper van! 2 "Urinals" used to visit our yard, with side cars, reverse gear, and a machine gun mount on the ex-military one!

Yes barry but what's your point ? It just looks to be a bog standard grass track sidecar outfit

I think it's just lovely - not at all pretentious or 'perfect' (sea worthy).  Hard as nails engineering to do the job it is supposed to do.  It's all down to personal taste I suppose.

I do worry about you sometime Barry! :D

I also wondered about the suitability of a two stroke for chair pulling but then again we saw how those modern Jawa's  are mated with chairs and are fine by all accounts, ask Jim.

You worry about me Bob? I worry about myself.

And here is one for you. An early eco friendly outfit.

I like the KR and VW Splittie van side cars!
My brother used to have a Beeza with a wooden coffin side car!

One of my early experiences was when one of the Skin-heads (1973) had upset the only 'Greaser' girl in the school. and the Skin-head girls (Dorises?) were going to beat her up.
The local greaser gang called the 'Purple Hearts' turned up on mass at the end of school on British bikes, what a roar, with a side car at the front - a coffin just like you have described Marcus.
The Greaser girl calmly walked across the playground and was picked-up by the gang.
A few of the bikers decided to chase the main skin head (Steve 'Noddy' Brown) for a while across the fields.  He soon learned to run fast.
Quite a few years later I became friends with Noddy brown who now looked like a member of ZZ top with leathers and a long beard.
The experience of being chased across the field was always a great tale.   No one troubled the bike girl (as hot as hot can be) ever again.
This was all a bit of a surreal experience that stuck in my mind forever - our school was a very ordinary comprehensive with little or no real trouble.

And don't tell me, her name was Leslie, you married her and lived happily ever after?

Love the photo of the dog in the sidecar doing the leaning out!

When I return home to my laptop I look forward to posting a pic. Of a little grey Fergie tractor . It's not a microcar or indeed rare but following barry's logic - " it's lovely not at all pretentious or "perfect" . Hard as nails engineering to do the job it's supposed to do.it's all down to personal taste I suppose " ;).   a photo of a garden spade will be next after that  ;D
