From the GOAOM thread:
She looks like a no nonsense girl.
The socks suggest she's a sidecar passenger.
Mother was not overly enthused with the idea of posing with fathers pride and joy.
But she bore up stoically.
Women of her day were expected to maintain strict adherence to dress codes and rules of social behavior; often made them look like grandmothers in their 30s. Don't underestimate her; she may have just finished riding that thing from John O' Groats to Land's End and is heading to her botfriend's place to give him a thrill.
very nice BSA side valve outfit and double adult chair seen at the Hollyville caff, west kingsdown, kent england ,last year.
That looks like an M21 BSA and a Busmar sidecar.
That's fantastic! Impressionist stuff is very much to my liking (my favorite being the one of Apollo and Rocky at the end of Rocky III)
I'd like to know more about the custom paint by numbers as I have some things I'd like to do. What size was this? Is it a real canvas or a flat board?
It's a canvas, on a frame. This one is 16 X 20 but there are a variety of sizes, and they are CHEEP! to be honest. I think this was 40 bucks. Paint and everything. You upload a photo and it is converted via MAGIC (or computers or some shit) and put on a canvas on a frame. I was somewhat skeptical but I think the result is pretty good.
Nice. Growing up in the UK in the 60s I remember seeing sidecars like that all the time.
My wife's dad had a BSA 650 Gold Flash with a double adult Busmar sidecar when we met. It was everyday, family transport and the motorcycle interest probably helped my acceptance to the family, me with the Rocker jacket, boots, etc. George even subscribed to both the UK motorcycle magazines, the "Blue un" and the "Green un".
As with most sidecar types of the time George was more than competent with all aspects of maintenance. He thought nothing of removing and repairing engines despite having no garage. The outfit lived out in the open.
Beyond the outfit being transport for work, it also took the family on day trips and holidays. It was also interesting riding pillion, as the guy destined to be my father in law made the outfit perform in ways that belied its looks.

Pretty sure my wife would love a busmar.
May need to make one one day.
That was so true then, cars were rare and expensive post war. Working men could only afford a motorcycle, get married and stick a sidecar on it. Then when money became more plentiful people bought cars. Those that did not want to take a the driving test went for a Reliant Regal! A friend of the family followed that route, never had to take a driving test.....
I love a bevel head BMW.
