Douglas With Dixon Banking Sidecar

Not on Display

This exhibit is notable for the banking sidecar chassis, designed and built by Freddie Dixon. The complete outfit could be banked to either side for optimal cornering speeds. The sidecar wheel is mounted on a seven-inch crank, raised or lowered by the passenger with the long lever in front of the wheel. Using a similar 600cc Douglas motorcycle in combination with this unique banking chassis, Dixon won the first Isle of Man TT race for sidecar outfits in 1923, at an average speed of 53.15mph/85.54kph.
