    Was gonna launch it up our farm track off the rear stand just like him, despite a lot of effort mechanical incompetence got in the way of that ever happening!
    Did you take any pictures of your efforts.

    Nope, couldn't afford a camera, or film, then take it into town for developing and wait for weeks to get some fuzzy black and white prints back, and they call them the good old days!

    Edit, I think I have a pic of me and the sidecar frame in a later incarnation, I'll have a rummage....

    Yes, it's such a shame for reasons stated that many of our earlier antics with vehicles were not recorded. Got loads now with the advent of digital. In fact, too many.

    1923 Hispano - Suiza. The H6 engine featured a straight-six engine inspired by designer Marc Birkigt's work on aircraft engines. It was an all-aluminium engine displacing 6,597 cubic centimetres (403 cu in). Apart from the new overhead camshaft, it was essentially half of Birkigt's aviation V12 design. The seven-bearing crankshaft was milled from a 600 lb (272 kg) steel billet to become a sturdy 35 lb (16 kg) unit, while the block used screwed-in steel liners, and the water passages were enamelled to prevent corrosion.
