An Indian family has resurrected a vintage tricycles fold-out adult tricycle, which was once sold on the streets of Mumbai for a hefty price.
The family behind the original tricycle has now been approached by local authorities and the brand has been revived, a spokesperson for the brand said on Thursday.
The folded adult tricycles were popularised in the 1960s in the southern city of Chennai, where they were widely exported.
In the early 1990s, Chennai residents sold the tricyclers for around Rs 5,000 ($1,900).
The family that took the old tricycler to the local authorities decided to resurrect the original folding adult tricercles as a gift to the community.
The tricycling enthusiasts, who had no idea that the tricycle had been taken to the city’s police station by the police, were not impressed with the gift.
“We were really surprised that the police didn’t get it,” the spokesperson said.
This is a very old brand that’s been in the market for many years.
This is a brand that we never thought that it would be revived,” he added.
A spokesperson for Chennai Police said that the department is still looking for the original owner.
