Monobloc Trikes

At Burham Park you can see those tiny three-wheeled pedal vehicles. Kids rent them to playfully go around a short distance path of about 200 meters (I think) for an hour. Some have fancy looking roofs, some have “A” roofs, and some have no roofs. Those single seater ones are the most common but I have also seen several tandem ones. What truly caught my attention is the practical design of its seating. A Monobloc chair is removable, replaceable, readily available, and easy to clean.

Utility Bicycles in Japan

Utility cycling is a big thing in Japan. On the contrary it seems personal motorbike usage in Japan is a rare thing unlike in Indonesia and Vietnam. In Tokyo I’ve seen a few motorcycles for business purposes such as food delivery.

What I have here are few snapshot collections of typical Japanese utility bicycles parked almost anywhere unless there’s a “no parking sign” indicated.

Motorela

This is a tricycle that looks like a mini jeepney or a multicab. I’ve seen this type of trike in Camiguin, Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon provinces.
In Malaybalay City it functions like a shared taxi while in Cagayan de Oro City it works like a jeepney system.

The pictures here are from Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

Top to Bottom Split Windshield Trikes

The windshield of these tricycles in Carcar run from top to bottom with vertical divider.

Fog Lamps as Props

I have noticed that in south Cebu it is common to see jeepneys and tricycles having fog lamps as props. The more fog lamps the more macho it is.

Back Bench Trikes

Mabinay tricycles are elongated and have benches in both sides at the back.

Split Windshield Trikes

Dumaguete tricycles are spacious have split windshield.

Rectangular Trikes

The Legazpi trikes have rectangular windows in both driver and passenger sides.
