Declare your bit on the side

1 of 1

The 101-year-old British sidecar manufacturer Watsonian Squire has released this tongue-in-cheek t-shirt.

It features an image of a 1950s Monza outfit that was used in the original promotion at the time, and the ‘Mr Watson’s Bit On The Side’ comment refers to the company’s founder, Fred Watson.

Watsonian Squire is doing well enough with sales of sidecar conversions to have given up the UK distribution of Royal Enfield’s faux classic motorcycle range.

For more details on the t-shirt, which costs £12.95 and comes in sizes S-XXL, visit Watsonian at
