1899-1903 Passenger Trailer/ Trailing Car (Remorque) 

These trailers, popular between 1900 and 1903, were the ancestor of the motorcycle sidecar. They were fitted to both bicycles and motorcycles. Most roads of the day were rutted tracks. When fitted to a motorcycle, in wet weather, the passenger behind would have received more than their fair share of mud. Hence, the development of the sidecar.

This one, currently being restored, is from France. I’ll update this page as restoration progresses.
