  1. there it is white plate with a red L, this meant you were a learner and could not ride a bike bigger that a 250 , and could not carry a passenger other than a fully licensed rider ,and as most kids were poor and side car combo did not come under this engine size law , a combo offer,d a cheap way in , they were going cheap back then as, most family men were going to cheap cars , the war was over finally and more and more cheap cars were coming onto the market , the upside for the kids was they combos were for the best part well looked after and you could shit can the side car after you passed your test , the roots of cafe racers boyo
