Can't say as I've seen a sidecar on a tractor before!

Well now, there's something you don't see every day. English sidecar, picture might be from over there. What ever it takes to get down the road, I guess. :-)

It looks like a Fordson but I don't know what vintage. The Speed is not probably excessive.
The CIAMAG Forum has many nice old photos of Motorcycles of that era.

I had an older friend, now deceased, who was not a Fordson fan who would have said, "I'm surprised that sidecar was able to haul that lady and pull that danged ol' Fordson".

Maybe it's just an optical illusion, but Greg appears to be right.

If that picture was taken here in the U S A where we drive on the right side of the road, I don't know what woman would like hanging out in oncoming traffic like that?

My dad always said the English Fordsons went so fast you could never use top gear.
Ours was a U.S. Built Fordson.

Alan F, I mean, it IS only fair after all! She went out all those years with a horse collar and a rope PULLING the plow while he pushed.

I love that couple with their go to town rig :-)

Here's another strange contraption - a sidecar with motorcycle?

(Swedish license plates for a Harley registered on a factory owner O. Martenson, Edsbyn, Gavleborg county in 1925)

Kevin, great to hear from you! I just noticed that the photo you posted looks like the fellow mounted his V-twin bike inside a model T frame! How cool is that?

I wonder how much dirt and mud that cleated wheel shoveled into the sidecar?
