Samlor Chalaeng SAMLORS IN THAILAND (ALL 3 WHEELED VEHICLES USED IN THAILAND)

 

Samlors (three-wheeled bikes) have been used in Thailand for over 60 years. They have evolved greatly during that time and continue to prove to be a very useful mode of transportation. Though motorcycle taxis are becoming more common for quick trips, there’s still nothing like a samlor for carrying a load or riding in a bit more comfort.

Samlor Chalaeng ( สามล้อซาเล้ง )

The delivery samlor has been used for quite some time but became very important during the major floods in Bangkok in 1983. During that time many major thoroughfares were flooded and most vehicles were unable to pass. The red samlor came to the rescue, moving goods from normal delivery trucks down the flooded streets and sois to waiting customers. This vehicle is found throughout the country, where ever deliveries have to be made.- http://3wheeledcheese.wordpress.com

Next in the evolution of the samlor was adding a passenger compartment to the back of a motorcycle. As distances from shopping centers increased, so did the need for more speed and something other than human power to drive the beast. These samlors are found throughout the country but are not as common as other species. - http://3wheeledcheese.wordpress.com
