Sidecar swingers are like that.

Ah, I guess that's a racing machine that many people are not familiar with.  As Zoidberg said it's a sidecar outfit.  The picture in the first post, and two below, are F1 sidecars, with 1000cc engines mounted behind the driver.  You also get F2 outfits with 600cc engines, as shown in the last picture below.  These have a much shorter wheelbase as the engine sits in front, with a riding position quite similar to a drag bike.

Sidecars and TTZero are my favourite events at the TT.

When I was little,I used to go to some of the races in NI with my dad,and you used to see Morgan three wheels racing with the sidecars :D
