THIS NOT A TOY
 
Invented in France in 1893, sidecars predate the first production motorcycles, as they were originally designed for a newspaper competition to find the best method of carrying a passenger on a bicycle. In 1903 a patent for the motorcycle sidecar was submitted by Mr WJ Graham of Enfield in Middlesex, and the sidecar quickly exploded in popularity, being cheaper than a car and more useful than a motorcycle on its own.
 
Early manufacturers produced a variety of styles, with a complete absence of modern safety standards as the main characteristic. Photos of early sidecars often feature stoic Edwardian women attempting to look totally fine about their precarious seating.
