A few weeks ago, I featured a modern Harley with a sidecar and trailer, and the general consensus (understandably) was that you’d be better off with a truck. While that might be true, I still find these combinations interesting – triply so when it’s a classic Italian, the sidecar allows the bike to lean, and everything is painted to match!
Thanks to a 2-person Hannigan sidecar and a Little Guy camper, this Harley is ready to carry 4 people and all of their stuff – or just two people that want to sleep with their bike. I’m trying to remember the last time I saw this amount of weight added to a motorcycle.
As if a ‘78 CB750A isn’t rare enough, why not put a Jawa/Velorex sidecar on it? Then just to be sure you have the one and only mount a Hedingham leading link front fork set up on it. If that doesn’t put you in the ‘one of a kind’ category, nothing will.
This Suzuki DR650 has grown quite an appendage – a sidecar specifically designed for overland exploration. Now you can take everything AND the kitchen sink with you.

The Indian Power Plus was a successful roadster and canvas for racing bikes, especially with Erwin “Cannonball” Baker (after whom the Cannonball Run was named after). Hemmings called this “the engine that changed American motorcycling.” Today we’ve got an example that forgoes the racing pedigree for the utility of a sidecar.
Post Sale Update: This trike sold for the opening bid of $4,500. When Kawasaki introduced the KX500 motocrosser in 1983, Dirt Bike magazine called it “unrideable” and “violent.” The owner of this bike apparently never read that article, because he’s decided to take it to another level of lunacy by adding a wheel. Well, that’s not fair, he does say …
How much would the last of something be worth? In a world that is dominated by scarcity, real or imagined, what is the value of ‘the only one known to exist’? This Harley Davidson Forecar is the only one, and it’s for sale. The Forecar was introduced in 1913 in response to a perceived need for delivery vehicles in the …
Ercole is Italian for Hercules – an appropriate name for this vintage three-wheeler that could carry nearly a ton of weight in the hydraulic bed. Some models came with a cab that could fit three, though this example was designed for a solo rider that would have to brave the weather.
During the 1970s, America was suffering through an oil embargo. Lots of small companies tried to enter the automotive market by focusing on gas mileage. Bob Keyes of Ventura, California looked at a study that found “93% of the vehicles on the freeways in Southern California were being driven with only a single occupant, the driver.” His thought that having …
Fisker and Nielsen of Copenhagen, Denmark made their first motorcycle in 1919, a 750 CC inline four cylinder cleverly known as the Model A. An improved Model B followed and was produced until 1926 with 1,300 total units sold.
