Sarmlor
« on: February 17, 2014, 11:55:20 AM »
Looking for a sarmlor, the old pedal kind...not the motorbike kind, to restore. I want to restore one to it's original glory. If you know of one laying around somewhere, give me a shout. Thanks

Will do. They seem to have a long life, though, being wheeled around the garbage bins after their usefulness as people carriers has expired.

Thanks SAF. I can recall back in the day (1965) that they cost the equivalent of $500 US. But that was 49 yrs ago, so I could be mistaken. They were about the only form of public transportation other than the songthou (sp). There were a few motorbike taxi's, but very few.

You must have been in town to have the benefit of such advanced transport! Out here in the sticks is was buffalo, shanks's pony or, perhaps, a bicycle.
