San lun che means “three wheel vehicle”. So, these both could technically be called san lun ches. I guess they could also both be called tricycles. This never sounded quite right to me, which is why I’ve stuck with san lun che. I mean, who puts a steel beam or ice cream cooler on a tricycle?
As with the one in my previous post, this san lun che is gas powered. The chain and the right peddle are missing. I think that the flap behind the front wheel is a leftover from the winter months, and is more meant to shield the driver’s legs from cold wind and such then to act as a mud flap.
I took this shot with my iPhone 4, and was really unhappy with it. Amongst other things, the focus was way off. I had a good laugh when taking it, and thought it would be fun for folks to see, so I didn’t feel like just deleting it. Converting it to B&W, and tweaking it with Lightroom, seems to have saved it somewhat.
