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

I got enough projects, but that M-72 looks ripe to be hauling an SPG-9

I hope that's just a hose and pump, because that looks like it can't carry more than a six pack worth of fluids.

Don't forget the (presumably full) bladders of the two or three Firemen riding it.

The picture with the US soldiers in Iraq on an Ural/Dnepr M-72 with a sidecar is pretty cool.

Pre-WW2 Fabrique Nationale in France somewhere.

    

Possibly a Fabrique Nationale 1925


By the end of World War I, after having to manufacture motorcycles for their occupiers, FN had few parts left, and some suppliers had gone. From 1921 the letter "T" was added to model names. The Type 700T Four had a three-speed gearbox. In 1922 the Type 285TT single had an improved cylinder head. Also the first racer, the Type VII was built.[2]

From 1924, all models had the less expensive chain drive. Most of these were sv and ohv 348 cc and 498 cc singles. The FN M70 "Sahara" 348cc side valve was the most produced FN motorcycle of the interwar period. It was famous for as the name says crossing the Sahara in the 1920s. The FN M90 was as 498cc side valve which was produced in the 1930s. There were also 596 cc ohv machines. The FN M86 is very nice example of a 498cc ohv built in the 1930s. From 1924 FN single-cylinder engines changed from semi unit construction (as seen in the last semi-unit single, the 1922 FN 285TT, in its last year of sale in 1924,) to unit construction engines (as seen in the new-for-1924 M.60). A new chain driven M.50 Four was released with a new Amac carburettor and front brakes.[3] In 1931 a Villiers 198 cc two-stroke FN model appeared. In 1938, the M.12 992 cc air-cooled sv flat twin was built for military use, and the all alloy M.11 was released in 350 cc ohv, 500 cc sv and 600 cc sv models. Then World War II intervened. An M.12 Tri-car was developed and produced for military use.[3]
