|The Watsonian Meteor sidecar appeals to the aviator in you.|
The Watsonian Motorcycle & Sidecar Company will re-launch its Meteor sidecar, 60 years after production of the original ceased.
The Meteor was sleek and rare — only 601 originals were made, between 1946 and 1949.
|Mosquito bomber fuel tank inspired the new Meteor.|
Mosquito bomber reserve tanks being on the rare side these days, the body of the modern Meteor is fibreglass, from a mold of one of the originals.
According to the Newsletter, "It sits on a tubular steel chassis, which is uprated from the 1940s' design with addition of a shock absorber."
