Here’s one of those, “Why don’t we have one of these?” stories that not only mixes two modes of adventure transportation, but does it in jaunty British style.

It’s the sidecar boat, and it’s fabulous in a relatively impractical sort of way.

Seriously, leave it to the British in 1960 to come up with a motorcycle sidecar that’s also a miniature runabout, capable of 11 knots.

It’s like James Bond got together with Hot Wheels. And it’s brilliant.
