That's a velorex Oskar 54. A Czech built tri-cycle with a tubular frame covered by linen powered by a 250cc JAWA engine.

Velorex also made sidecars.  Both the Jawas I have owned had Velorex chairs on them occasionally.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I'd like to see the face on the TRRL guy if you showed up with that thing for crash testing today.... :o :wacko:

I don't think it would get ANY stars in the EURO-NCAP rating!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Did they scream UTINI (Oo-tee-nee) going down the road?

A self propelled sidecar.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
