|Just imagine riding by an open pond in the dead of winter and discovering a sidecar box floating around on it, would you believe your eyes? There are even two people sitting in it, and instead of anxious cries for help, you hear the murmur of a small Yamaha outboard engine that gently propels the outfit across the surface. The sidecar as a boat. Formerly such ideas were only expected to arise in England. But if anything special happens in the area of sidecars nowadays, there can only be one man behind it: Ed Pols from Amsterdam, the high priest of motorcycle grand tourism. At the last RAI exhibition (the major Dutch yearly motorcycle exhibition, ed.) he presented the prototype of his Moturist sidecar as a folding camper. This RAI will bring the world scoop of a sailing Moturist sidecar body. And what’s more, any existing Moturist sidecar – there are more than 60 of them on the road by now – needs only minor adaptations to be used as a fishing boat. We from ‘Motorsport’ considered this such a tremendous stunt that we gladly reserved our front page for this motorcycle product ‘Made in Holland’.
