Bicycle side cars



Recently I had the good fortune to obtain a few issues of the fantastic British magazine " Cycling " some of the issues were from 1938, 1941 & 1947. The stories and advertisements are very informative as gives the cyclist an idea of what was popular at that period. Racing on the road as well as the track ( indoor on boards ) or touring and also the many new improvements to the trade in the way of parts etc. Featured in the add section were a few adds for side cars ( these of course are not popular anymore ) there were quite a few brands mentioned and pictured above is an add from one of my magazines showing the Armstrong brand of sidecar .Armstrong was a manufacturer of bicycles but made a few sidecars as well. Over the next few posts I'll include some articles & adds taken from " Cycling " magazine
