I'm with Frank_Lee on this one.

It is cool looking though.

How about this one guys?

1920 - First Harley Davidson Aerodynamic Sidecar called 'Bullet', 20-LX


Low area (narrow tires), and the undercarriage could be cleaned up. Has potential and it's historic.

The sidecar wheel can be fitted with a wind-resisting disc if desired..........we need to find an image of this.

C’mon all you Fast Drag Racers, Improve your riding skills that could possibly help your top end times shortening your ET. Learn how aerodynamics could decrease your ET by allowing your bike to spend more HP moving down track. See how an aerodynamic front fender could cut a tenth off your ET.

Walter Baker and His Remarkable Electric Racing Cars
Walter Baker and His Remarkable Electric Racing Cars | The Old Motor








Quote:
By Michael Lamm. Back in 1902-03, Walter C. Baker built three streamlined electric racing cars. Called Torpedos, these all-but-forgotten electrics should be remembered for four good reasons:

Number one and most important, they allowed Walter Baker to become the first man in history to break the 100-mph barrier in a motorcar. That was in 1902.

Second, the Torpedos’ bodies were remarkably streamlined, decades ahead of anything similar.

Third, because Walter Baker regularly crashed his cars, none of his speed marks went into any record books. Even in his own day, he became known as Bad Luck Baker.

And finally, what probably saved his life in all those crashes were plain, simple shoulder harnesses, an idea again much too modern for the times.
I love the last image, the dude was Steve McQueen cool.

I'm sure it will find the love it deserves there. Did you notice the dual-port boxer engine? Here's a cut-down VW bus without that growth on the side.

That's a good way to fix all the rust!

Harley side hack

The motorcycle portion would be Cd 0.90 according to Hoerner.
The side hack 'body' would be partially embedded within turbulence from the bike itself,and its exposed frame/wheel.I wouldn't know how to guess.
