      • Here's a couple of bikes modified so riders could control them from the side car. The second one shows how a one armed and totally legless man still made a living in Southern California in 1925. That's perseverance!

            Wheels Through Time has a factory built version from 1916. It has a remote mounted kick starter in the side car, although I doubt it would work for this gentleman. Perhaps he had a custom built electric starter? You can check out a video of the WTT machine at https://youtu.be/n35n-tfzb9E.

                Let's not discount Mans' Best Friend in #1804b. Service dogs to the rescue!!!!

                May compression release allowing him to "kick it over" by hand/arm strength?

                          Nice looking 1939 Harley Davidson EL but what is that thing on the rear fender where saddlebags normally mount?

                          Thanks for posting Bob.

                          • Maybe a flag pole for parades?
