A WWII version could be made with the Zvezda M-72 or BMW R12 kit providing the sidecar and one of the the available 1/35 Harley-Davidsons.

I looked up the women in the photo - I couldn't find anything about the driver (the last name is probably misspelled) but:
Elise M Reniger Birth: 29 Sep 1896 New York  Death: 28 Sep 1941 Los Angeles
Helen Marie Striffler Birth: May 8 1893 Death: Oct 26 1980

Roland was a warrior from the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire, fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray
