Watsonian have paired their classic Meteor sidecar with a Royal Enfield Continental GT cafe racer to create a retro outfit with pedigree.
Based on a design dating back to 1946, the original Meteor was built using redundant aircraft reserve fuel tanks, which were made from stretched and spun plywood. The body shell of the modern Meteor is produced from glass fibre, but its light and aerodynamic design complements the lines of the cafe racer perfectly. The Meteor sits on a tubular steel chassis, which is uprated from the 1940’s design with addition of a shock-absorber and 16″ wheel. A fold-down screen is mounted on a cast aluminium bar in front of the cockpit and the seat tilts forward to provide access to storage space behind.
