Sidecar MX has been around about as long as regular MX in Europe. There is a World Championship for them and in Eastern Europe they draw larger crowds than many regular MX races. D37 in SoCal has a class for them in Desert racing, still. Now they use mainly Zabel 750 single cylinder 2-stroke motors but I well remember the 70's when Rhind Tutt built the frame kits for Honda 750, 4 cylinders, twin Triumphs, Nortons and B.S.A. 650-750.

The guy in the side car gets a good workout! It looks awsome and its amazing how fast they can manuever.
