Sidecar
« on: August 09, 2015, 09:16:08 AM »
has anybody seen a sidecar made probably in the early 50s?  I have seen a couple of them and remember a manufacturer tag that part of it said "sea plane company".

I found this image of one, but no details. I saw one similar to it at the Copake auction a couple of years ago.

I just got an update.  It was featured in the 1963 Popular Mechanics magazine.   It sold roe $59 and was made by the Mohs Seaplane Company.

Oh, my... plug in "Mohs Seaplane Company sidecar" into Google and you'll get all kinds of fascinating hits in return. http://www.rokemneedlearts.com/carsindepth/wordpressblog/?p=1156 is especially memorable...
