We have thought for a long time that the old forecarriage was dead, buried, and well-nigh forgotten; but Ajasson de Grandsagne has attempted its revivaL He argues that the forecar is more safe and more rigid than the sidecar, it only pays the motor cycle tax in France, and has never been tried on a three-speed-cum-clutch motor cycle of modern construction. He does not seriously intend it for passenger-carrying, but rather for transforming a motor bicycle into a tricycle for winter use and for the transport of light goods in a suitable box carrier. Two examples are shown - one fitted to a Powerplus Indian, in which case the longitudinal members terminate at a point below the saddle, thus avoiding interference with the rear springing; while the other IS fitted to a 4¼ h.p. B.S.A. The design has been modernised, in so far as the fitting of sprung front axles, coil springs being used.
