Cool Vehicles Alert: June Update
The three-wheeler is a motorcycle taxi in Petchabun, north-central Thailand. This one's been around the block a few times. I'm pretty sure that people just rip apart some old rolling stock and whip these things out themselves, each one has different frame geometry. Different regions of Thailand have different solutions to the problem of local transportation. This kind of rig is common in Central Thailand, but you won't find them everywhere.
The bicycle I came across in a small market town in the countryside of Pitsanalok. Now isn't that a nice paint job? I'm pretty sure that the element connecting the steering head to the handle bars was a home-fabricated custom job. A custom ride without going broke, that shows a lot of class.
