WIDTH: 24″

12 1/2″ wheels (62-203 tyres)

 

Children’s cycle sidecars were a popular option in Britain before World War Two, at a time when most families did not own cars. In those days bicycles or tandems were the main form of individual transportation.

According to a magazine article (reproduced towards the bottom of the page), though it was legal to carry a child in a sidecar, it was illegal to do the same in a trailer pulled behind a tandem. However I’ve seen many European photos of children in cycle trailers …as well a trailers used to carry dogs.

The trailer featured here was manufactured by a sidecar company, and fits easily onto the seatpost of any bicycle. It has been updated recently with rear lights and a child seatbelt. The hood is slightly damaged on the edges (covered with black tape as a repair) but otherwise it is in excellent condition and ready to use.
