The motorcycle with sidecar outfit was restored back in the 1980s and was fully operational. It was taken on a number of rallies with the family on board. In between rallies, it was housed in Kevin’s garage until 2011 when it was moved to its current display stand at the National Motor Racing Museum in Bathurst.
The motorcycle has sustained minor damage from a leaking battery (which has since been removed from the battery case) and from an article recently falling onto the paintwork on the front mudguard.
This is an original Dusting sidecar made in Australia circa 1920s/30s. These were a generic sidecar that were attached to various motorcycles. This particular sidecar had been set aside to be used with a Henderson. It is in its original condition with the leather seat intact and the Dusting logo can still be clearly seen. The sidecar fittings are for an outfit with the sidecar on the left, ie. for UK, Australia, New Zealand or South African roads. As well as the fittings, the sidecar has its wheel and two mudguards, transfers and booklet.
