Designed and built in the Netherlands by De Café Racer, this pedal-powered bus can accommodate 10 little ones and an adult driver. This would be pretty cool idea in the US, actually. because this would help reducing pollution, prevents kids from getting grease dripping fats and also tiring them out= shutting them up.
As you might have guessed, most of kids are notoriously lazy thus it might not have enough pedal power, or kids too obese to get going. (not great power/weight ratio)
So, the bus-bike also has an auxiliary electric motor in case the little passengers are lazy and useless. The driver should make them walk home.

Edwin is a jeans company originated in Japan. I have owned a few pairs in the past.
This is a very narcissistic and too staged video to my taste, just like any clothing ads. I have never liked the Arlo Guthrie's song, either. In fact, I hate it, especially live version.
Today is Cockeye's 46th birthday.
He likes a lot of stuff but I know he loves naked women on bicycles, Laura Prepon, (young) Christina Ricci, Dean Martin, Any women who would make him sandwiches, Big bottoms, cars and babes in general. Beer n' brats.
And absolutely obsessed with fleet train graffiti.
Happy Birthday, Cockeye.

that's switchers to those of us from USA. first is 08 class diesel electric. next is 06 class diesel-hydraulic. the 06 has a 5 speed transmission run through a fluid coupling. and last is 07 class diesel electric. diesel electrics of course have electric motors for transmissions. notice these locos all have side rods to power all driving wheels like a steam locomotive.
