Ha, shows what I know. I'd have said Rickman-Ossa. I had a Rickman-Zundapp pass through my hands a few years back.

Good question. I'd always wondered about that. Certainly ain't waterproof .
Flexes a little to give a bit of comfort on the rough roads and suspension of the time?
That and a rigid sidecar body might pull and shake itself apart.

Light weight for a low HP cycle? Adapted from an existing rickshaw design?

Appears to be lined with leather for all weather comfort. And it looks very swank.

Ding, Ding, Ding for DMZ. Wicker Hacks, despite their rickshaw similarity, were fitted for their low weight. For 1914, they were even considered reasonably comfortable.
