Is it a running light? I had a sidecar with an amber light on the front so approaching traffic could see what a lopsided mess the bike was and give it a suitably huge amount of space

Cause you never knew when the next wobble was due!

Is there a small bubble in there to check that the sidecar is level at all times?

Its a document holder for the Spanish ID doc usually mounted on the front of the scooter.

Is it a flux capacitor? Once the scooter hits 88mph it can time travel.

The only way that thing is hitting 88mph is by dropping it off a cliff.

Its a forward facing radar array, it controls the death ray for use in city traffic...

Silly? You know we’ve all dreamed of one at some point.
