Retailer Anthropologie is now offering a Rickshaw on their website, presumably for ironically carting your friends around in. For $2200 you get what looks like an “authentic” rickshaw with a collapsible sunshade, truss fork, and double front triangle along with the bolt-on passenger carrier. Available for $2200 with decorations already applied, I’d guess there are only a few of these and that they’re all a bit different from one another.
These are expensive bikes here, and are surely expensive for the drivers that pilot these in many parts of the world. I wonder how many trips it takes a driver to earn their wheels, in India for instance?
