the yellow & black Yamy outfit above.

Does the spoiler/air fin on the front of the sidecar work, or is it just show and why isn't there one on the back like racing cars ?

That's not a spoiler, it's just the sidecar's nose. Here's a better pic of a Comanche:

Cars need spoilers because they're aerodynamic - so at high speeds (> 100 mph) they tend to lift off the road. Sidecars aren't aerodynamic, and rarely go over 100 mph, so there's no need for spoilers. (Spoilers actually slow you down on the straights - so you don't want one if you don't need one).
