Re: Starting Rickshaw business - PLEASE advise
My feeling is that you can not do this motorized without pretty serious expense.
Electric might not be feasible at any price. Maybe that's going too far. Perhaps there's an electric drive train that will work. But I'll bet the price is ghastly.
Throw in the inevitable breakdowns, with paying customers aboard, and it might not be worth trying.
But before I start sounding like a complete downer, I'd suggest giving it a shot with good old leg power.
I'd consider doing that myself. You'll have fun and you'll slow down the aging process measurably.
And you'll have a much better chance of making a profit.
