photoblog image Tricycle Interior

Tricycle Interior

Most tricycles are built around Honda 125 or 150 cc bikes. Apart from the regular dials and gauges on the bike dash, no other enhancements are added for the driver's benefit, except the curtains, to be spread out and tied with strings in the event of rainfall. Safety standards are probably not enforced that strictly. But then, there are not too many crashes or accidents at the speeds they normally operate.


I spied an idle an tricycle and hopped in to take a closer look. This particular vehicle has been in regular service for over fifteen odd years. Considering the amount of input in terms of operating costs and maintenance and the yeoman servie delivered, I would say that they are some of the most efficient vehicles around.

Brilliant image, Ayush..best, so far, in your fine series on Philippine tricycles.
very good composition Ayush... i like the rust breaking through on the handle bars... this machine looks like it will go on forever....petersmile
Great inside... with lots of details to view.
Great shot Ayush! You're able to show much in one frame. Are those socks tied on the handlebars?
That is very cool.

Probably the key to their longevity and reliability is because they are a relatively uncomplicated design Ayush

WOW, I am impressed both by your story and the picture.
I know that Honda is doing a great thing with motorcycles.

These vehicles are something else! Mind you they are a good advert for the longevity of Honda engines!

Wow. This one has done its time!
Superb capture smile
excellent Ayush!
It has certainly seen some use over the years on appearances but as Bill says a good advert for Honda engines.
It has obviously done yeoman service, Ayush.
This works very well

What is it about getting inside to see the inner workings of these machines, Ayush! I love it. Good for you to hop inside to let us see it up close and personal. smile

The conversion works with the subject. I see he has a snuff box in the dark glasses compartment.
