This is a rare beast – a sidecar version of the famous Corgi Folding Motorcycle – developed from the famous paratroopers Wellbike of World War 2.

It’s in superb all round condition, and the sidecar bolts up or unbolts in 3 minutes so you can ride it solo as a local runabout …and attach it instantly when one of your kids fancies a ride.

The sidecar does not have a screen, and this keeps it in the style of the original box sidecars fitted to Corgi motorcycles (see brochure below).

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts – but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.
2-Stroke engines – and cyclemotors in particular – are notoriously unreliable. Basic servicing is generally required if unused for even a few weeks.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.
Unless an auction description specifically states that the vehicle is running, THE VEHICLE IS SOLD FOR RESTORATION.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
