Don't know what scale your friend is considering, but ScaleLink already makes an excellent example in 1/32 . Seem to recall there is a surviving example in the UK somewhere that John used for measurements when creating his masters.

welding locations between the bike and sidecar.It may help.

Fantastic, great to hear there'll be a small scale Clyno. I've got a couple of photos of the NMM's Clyno and may see it next month on a return visit to the NMM. Apparently the IWM has one too, in storage at Duxford but if you ask, they'll let you see it

A little video here

includes some of Rob's pics.

Might help a little.

When might we see the model of this? And any other bikes? And how are the French coming along? And where can I buy them?

Getting a transport at that point sitting around idly by halting at each traffic signals are something an every day official couldn't maintain a strategic distance from before the appearance of the ride-sharing period.  Bike pooling in Pune The individuals who decide on the carpooling framework every day, they can comprehend the measure of cash they are sparing while at the same time heading off to the workplace.
