This delightful little Corgi Motorcycle sports a Watsonian Child’s Sidecar that was specially adapted for it.
I owned it for several years (2005-2008). The sidecar could be attached or detached in under 5 minutes to make it easy for transportation and storage.
As you can see in the period ads below, after the War, Brockhouse tried to market the idea of a Corgi Combination – using a small commercial box sidecar – as a viable utility vehicle for folks who could not afford a van (remember that both money and vehicles were in short supply in late 1940’s Britiain).
