Sep 14 2007 5 CommentsTiny Tokyo transportation Monkey (or mini) bikes, as the name implies, aren’t exactly massive, but presumably this little machine, is about as miniaturised as motorbikes can get.
There’s probably some law against this sort of thing in the UK.
Otherwise the urban waste grounds of the nation would be strewn with tracksuited ne’er do wells doing bunny hops and melting their shellsuit bottoms to their legs on the engine cowling.
Tiny bikes and their usually tiny minded riders have been something of a problem in the summer holiday months of late. Whizzing carefree around the streets of suburban Britain, their antic curtailed by an army of curtain twitching duffers and curmudgeons ringing the police every five minutes prompted the plods to set up a website where you grass up local miscreants. Despite this, it’s more likely that the terrible summer weather in the UK has dampened the micro bikers antics somewhat.
Either that or they all got guns, knives and dangerous fireworks for christmas. I love living in the UK, it’s so much more exciting than other countries.
am desperate for something like this (lots of hills in Seoul), which looks small enough to take on to the subway. do you by any chance know the brand of this mini bike? much appreciated!
Sorry superlocal, but I saw the bike outside a second hand shop and didn’t notice who the maker was.
I have always wanted to ride this ride…
no worries! will keep an eye out in Seoul. thanks! ^^
