Squire Sidecar

Friday, June 6th, 2008 Posted in Squire | 2 Comments »

Sidecar for Vespa Scooters.

The Squire sidecar is still produced by Watsonian - Squire of Gloucestershire England. Watsonian and Squire sidecars merged in 1988 to form a company that has a history going back to 1912. The following is the pamphlet for the PV1 and CV1 sidecars they produce, both a passenger and cargo sidecar.

(Material below provided by Doug Bingham)

Europe’s leading sidecar maker has developed two new sidecars specifically for the Vespa range of motor scooters

  • The PV1 single seater provides attractive and comfortable passenger transport with the benefits of increased stability in bad weather, additional luggage space and the availability of full weather protection
  • The CV1 commercial box variant has massive load carrying capability ideal for local deliveries where economical and maneuverable transport is a prime requirement.
  • Easily fitted to most Vespa models with no modifications to scooter, the sidecar may also be quickly detached if required.
