Thank you Mandar, but picture is posted. However, I request those of you who took pictures of us this morning to please upload them. I was too busy pedalling to stop to take pictures of ourselves.

Hey Hari, your comment is noted, which is why I decided on the steel roadster. The choice of milkmen, dhobi, and all those deliverymen in various cities. It is true we don't know how long the frame can take the additional stress. My wife is not comfortable riding a bicycle, hence the tandem was selected. Further, I wanted my passenger beside me so we could chat, see things from a similar perspective, rather than the impersonal cycle rickshaw where the passenger is way behind, and has to speak loudly to be heard.

The above points were some which were considered at the time of designing and fabrication. Other thoughts were of using the seat for use by invalids who are pushed on wheelchairs, who face difficulties of transportation on regular cars and taxis.

I had carried the entire sidecar (dismantled) on the Bolero for the 3500km roadtrip through Rajasthan during Diwali. Purpose was to use it with a hired bicycle for in-city touring and at Deoladeo bird sanctuary. Paying for a cycle rickshaw at the sanctuary depends on how long one retains it. But a self-ride with companion, one can spend much more time and enjoy birding without thought of a meter running.

I could go on....

Thanks Aditya. Good ride this morning!

I would indeed like to see your  'work of art', since it would fit any roadster.  Maybe we can have a ride just to see your creation.  Keep up the good work.
