Swallow Sidecar Model 7 Overview

The exceptional popularity of the Super Sports and Lightweight Sports de-Luxe has created a demand for a sidecar embodying the same first-class finish and workmanship at a lower price.

This has been attained by simplifying production without in any way forfeiting the sporting and elegant appearance, characteristic of the Swallow. The price has been made extremely attractive, and those perusing the specification should bear in mind that, although it is possible to produce a cheaper sidecar, it cannot be accomplished if the high quality and reliability, so essential to one’s pleasure, is to be retained.

An attractive utility Model suitable for machines up to 350 c.c. the seating accommodation is proportionately spacious without detracing from the lines of the body. The upholstery is luxurious and comfortable, the passenger being assured of ease throughout the longest of journeys.

An ideal Sidecar for Competition purposes or Sporting Events and represents the greatest possible value.
