Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850 Police with Sidecar 1974 http://www.flickr.com/photos/16141533@N06/4806072230/ LAPD had 1000ccm but 850ccm normally sorry, but looks more BMW of the /2 range, R50 or R60 think the sidecar is a Velorex like those used by Jawa Indeed, it appears to have an Earles style front fork, so it is likely to be a BMW R50 or R60, the sidecar is a Velorex model 560

was my first thought too, due to diameter of front brake, was irritade by design of US police, as they had Guzzis BTW have H0 model of italian Police, the model maker used BMW to fake Moto Guzzi
