    I always wondered how big,configuration and manufacturer of the engines in those things as there is so many of them it must be a decent size company.

    IT HAS A 356CC TWIN CYLINDER TWO STROKE WATERCOOLED ENGINE.

    4 SPEED PLUS REVERSE

    Tuk Tuk in thailand :Thailand tuktuk.net :We are tuktuk manufacturer and exporter tuktuk from bangkok to England,Germany,Netherland,Switzerland,Australia,J apan,Dubai,Kuwait,Denmak,Finland,France and America

    I notice they have a 4 stroke 660cc kit that fits straight into the 350 chassis,certainly would clear up a lot of the pollution problems from the smoky old maintainance starved 2 stroke models running around here in LOS.

    Certainly would raise some eyebrows driving around the streets of Asian suburbs back home.

    I can remember about a year ago there was a company wanting to import 6 Tuk Tuks for use here in Perth and do scenic tours around Fremantle, they went through the process of trying to get them OK for road rego here and couldnt make the requirements so they gave up.

    The history of Tuk-Tuk in thailand.
    The vehicles known as Tuk-Tuk originated in Japan by Daihatsu and it was Thailand who subsequently went into production with these vehicles many years later.
    Thailand built Tuk-Tuks cost between 95'000 Baht and 150'000 Baht. As far as we know, there are about five to six manufacturers of Tuk-Tuks in Thailand.
    The original Thai Tuk-Tuk is found in many places in Thailand, mostly operating as an open air taxi. Named for the sound made by their small-capacity, two-cycle engines, tuk-tuks are often found in tourist areas, around markets, or cruising the streets for fares. It is common to see 4 or 5 people in one tuk-tuk, such as students heading home from school, or a single person riding a Tuk-Tuk full of boxes and bags being taken home from the market.

    Visitors to Thailand are usually very interested and curious about the Tuk-Tuk, a locally made and designed three-wheeled vehicle. Tourists are often seen getting their picture taken with the open-air vehicle, and heard swapping tales of their experiences with the charming little machine.
    Tuk-Tuks were invented in Thailand over 50 years ago, evolving as a motorized relative of the rickshaw. The Tuk-Tuk was given its name from the rather rough sound of the early models. The single stroke motor powering the first three-wheelers had a distinctive hum when operating, and the "tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk-tuk" sound became a familiar sound to many in need of quick and convenient transportation in Bangkok. The Tuk-Tuk has improved its technology and quality over the years, while emerging as one of Thailand's most recognizable and identifiable symbols.
    While Tuk-Tuks are most commonly used for transporting passengers, many industrial uses for the vehicle have been initiated with dramatic changes incorporated into new designs and models. The relatively small size of the Tuk-Tuk finds the vehicle navigating small alleys on delivery routes, and scooting around narrow factories taking advantage of its agility and slight turning radius.
    Since the beginning, They can be modified to have automatic gears, doors, safety belts, air-conditioning, and much more depending on what the customer require.
    as current models, powered by a 550 CC Japanese made engine, are able to carry a payload of 1000 kilograms. Customers have used Tuk-Tuks for hauling goods in factories, distributing goods and products in regions that have extremely narrow roads, and transporting guests around resort properties

    There are a few here in Cape Town, though i cannot vouch that they are original tuk tuk's or the Indian variation.. They are used around Sea Point and the Waterfront and are advertised as free.. can't vouch for the free part either.

    You`ll have to find a bike shop that has someone who has worked on 2 stroke engines before,shouldn`t be too hard.

    A good service would have the air filter cleaned,transmission oil changed,carby over hauled and cleaned,exhaust and exhaust port cleaned of carbon,new spark plugs.

    I have looked into buying one of these here - my electric trike is a single - I'm not.
    Unfortunately, currently, a farang can't buy one without a taxi licence domestically - and a farang is restricted from getting a taxi licence 555!

    Copped a 500 baht (farang price) for not displaying a current rego sticker on the car.
    She had paid it (I remember giving her the money) but the sticker was in her handbag - since October!
    It was my fault- I sit in the passenger seat (and can read thai script reversed - yeah, right!).
