Here's something different, a nice looking Jack Taylor Tandem with something called a Watsonian sidecar. Buy it now is set at 750 pounds ($1,370, I make it in US dollars). Who was Watsonian, and how did these side cars work? Is it articulated, allowing the tandem to lean into turns? How much did the entire thing weigh?

BTW, the sizes are listed as 21 inch captain and 19 inch stoker, which may be correct on the seat tubes, but the TT is steeply sloped, and the head tube looks more like a 23-24 inch job. Might be good for the tall captain/short stoker team. Item is in Bradford, W. Yorkshire, but seller claims he will ship to U.S. No shipping charge listed, though, and, with the sidecar, it's likely to be a whopper.
