Lambretta Auto-rickshaws

These must be the last relics of the API Lambretta Auto-rickshaw...
Now they are out of productions as they could not adhere to the stringent Emission Norms, and also faced severe competition in the form of Bajaj and TVS and some Diesel sipping Autorickshaws...

This one seats three passengers and has a Luggage boot at the Rear, and hence the Bulging Behind.. :-)

This Goods Autorickshaw is retired after years of service...

These pictures were taken at Kumta 56 kms from Karwar, where you can still get to see these Vintage models running about.
