Indonesian Helicak Vehicle Paper Model - by Royaje Papercraft


An unusual Lambretta/Rickshaw type contraption from Indonesia, these Helicaks (because they look like a Helicopter, presumably) are one of the odder Lambretta conversions I've seen. They were introduced in Jakarta in the early '70s, but by the late '80s were deemed unsafe, as in an impending accident, the drivers tended to abandon ship, leaving the passengers trapped in the fibreglass cab to take the brunt of the collision. -

PhotobucketUma espécie de Lambreta ou Rickshaw feita na Indonésia, esta Helicak (chamdas assim talvez por causa de parecerem um pequeno helicóptero), é uma das conversões mais estranhas feitas com Lambretas que eu já vi. Elas foram introduzidas em Jacarta no início dos anos 70, mas no final dos anos 80 foram consideradas muito inseguras: quando batiam as Helicaks, os motoristas tendiam a abandonar o navio, deixando os passageiros presos na cabine de fibra de vidro para fugir da responsabilidade da colisão. -
