    fortapache
    (2631 items)

    I have wanted one of these for years and finally found one at last weekend's Rose Bowl. No big game this time but a lot of medium to small game.
    Back to this exciting model it was in the catalogs from 1962-1968 and with this I have every model in the 1968 catalog (there were 16). I think I have everything from the 1969 catalog too.
    Back again to this exciting model is that it has a movable handlebar that moves the front wheel. It is neat you will just have to take my word for it.
    This week was supposed to be Matchbox Box School but I ran across this. Next week we will have box school, or perhaps the week after.

      Nice. You never seen motorbikes with sidecars on the road any more.
    2. Caperkid, 3 years ago
      Elanski I just saw a caravan of side car bikes in Vancouver 30 or more. Really cool piece Fort.

      Nice cycle, they must be hard to find to find in that condition from that era. Congrats on completing your '68 series.

      I saw a bike with sidecar on the road yesterday. Figured out the make when I saw it but have forgotten what it was. My first experience with a sticky clutch was on Dneiper with a side car on a snowy day in Seattle. Lucky to be alive.

      Thank you very much Re-In-Vintage. I shall try to continue to come up with interesting items.

      Thank you very much kwqd. Snow plus a motorcycle with sidecar would be an interesting experience.

      yw, fortapache. Meant to say sticky throttle, not clutch. It was a dragger, not a driven sidecar, but it did ok in the snow. The sidecar acted like an outrigger. Pretty stable. The fellow who loaned it to me didn't tell me it used a sticky throttle. OK once I figured that out. Kevin

      kwqd I could see how a sticky throttle could be a problem. The first 4wd car I bought after moving up here had bad tires but I found a snow bank for stopping.
