    We spent a pleasant afternoon at the Imperial War Museum yesterday where I spotted this combo...


    My dad had a Norton 500 with a sidecar strapped to it in he late 1950s/early 1960s, so I'd assumed most combos were the same. But I see this one has a rear axle providing drive to both the bike and the car. I've been around for about 24,654 days and still finding I learn something new each day...just a pity I don't remember more than 1% of it!

    This character was the spitting image of someone I'd seen before, but just can't recall the name...


    ...and this seemingly random object (a late 1940s TV with a huge 9" screen) should be donated to the Amberley Wireless Museum...


    ...and you can make up your own caption for this one...


    ...but I think its supposed to read "Will he push her too?"

    Watching an R75 maneuvering in reverse gear remains an odd sight. Never quite get used to it.

    Remarkably expensive machines.
    C. Twice the price of a Kubelwagen (ISTR without armament).
