Once traveling in rural Maharashtra and mainly in Gujarat, I was happy as a kid to see that this is the land of homemade trikes (Jugaad / Jugad in Hindi). The reason being I passionately rebuilt a BSA threewheeler back in Israel years ago http://jpgmag.com/photos/2971820

Those machines are based on what looks like a Royal Enfieldchassis with an agricultural diesel power unit from Greaves cotton. Such as this one: http://jpgmag.com/photos/3044279Strong arms jump start the engine by a pulley and a rope, just like old grass mowers and blowers.

I met them two years later in the southern Tamil Nadu state: http://jpgmag.com/photos/3234558---------
