Motorcycle and sidecar in AA livery. This dual combination was a popular form of transport from the 1930s right through to the 1950s.
Used by commercial organisations as well as private bikers, the Automobile Association was a prime user, when the bike and sidecar were ridden by the AA patrolmen in their jodhpur shaped trousers and high brown leather boots.
AA members whose front radiators sported the AA badge, got a respectful salute from the patrolmen in those days too, as you drove by.
The familiar AA Golden Yellow and Black livery is faithfully reproduced on this minute new model, registered HGV 228, including the AA insignia of the period.
The bike is also highly detailed, especially the handlebars, which include brake levers and a rear view mirror. Note too, the black edge to the roof of the sidecar.
For lovers of motorbikes and AA vehicles through the ages, this is something different to add to your fleet.
