1899-1903 Passenger Trailer (Remorque)


1899-1903 Passenger Trailer/ Trailing Car (Remorque) 

These trailers, popular between the late 1890s and early 1900s, 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, needing restoration, is from France.
