Side Car Serves as Boat (Jun, 1934)

Side Car Serves as Boat
A MOTORCYCLE side car which doubles as a canoe on trips to the beach or river bank has recently made its appearance in Germany. The car is fitted with small metal pontoons which keep it upright in the water. Future models will be fitted with rudders, completing the transformation from side car to a navigable boat.

    Since it’s watertight, it can also double as a bathtub!

    But probably not while you’re using it as a boat, Rick. 🙂

    I wonder how involved it is in detaching the sidecar from the motorcycle?

    Ham: In Ural motorcycles, it’s just 3 bolts. As they are practically a copies of WW2 BMWs, I’ll suspect it’s the same in this case.
