Armoured motorcycle concept. Triumph 3SW

 Another attempt at mounting a machine gun on a motorcycle, this one is built on a 250cc Triumph 3SW and seems to consider the safety of the operator more than most I’ve seen.
This was apparently prototyped during the post Dunkirk crisis in England. The right side was covered with 1/4" steel plate and the idea was to provide a soldier with a way to carry a Bren Gun to some point and set up with cover provided by the armour plated bike. The unarmoured left side shows the box with spare barrel extra ammunition and a counter weight to balance the armour plate.
