    Vintage motorcycle sidecar camper - photos

    Vintage motorcycle sidecar camper. Strange conglomeration of both technology and participants. Was this advertised when it was taboo to show a man and a woman in a bed together?

    Its a 650cc single cylinder Panther favorite among sidecar users although I know someone who rides one solo.
    They used to joke about them firing every third lamp post.

    Indeed! jimfols asks "What motorcycle?". My impulse was look closer; that didn't help.

    The first pic, blonde uses bike as a ladder, these days she'd be decried for placement on a pedestal, reduced to a sex object.
    Bite me. She's cute and tall. One is mechanically inclined enough for detaching wheel and fender.
    In the side car mode a kid rides with the brunette, again when the shade is being adjusted.
    Give him a quarter; "off for the movies there sonny!".

    Reminds me [in reverse] of the old bachelor fisherman, runs personal ad "New female companion sought; healthy must cook, clean, and have a nice boat."
    "Send pictures of boat."

    "In search of Female companion cyclist. . ." In her case, when the Panther craps out, put up the tent, await AAA.

    Favorite because a 650cc single has better torque for the added weight?

    Nope. Standard shift on those CSC RX300.
