    When I was overseas in the army, we just called them "Lambrettas" because most were made by them and that was the name across the back.  They were even used as taxis - not very comfortable !!!

    Most of them are variants of what are colloquially known as Tuk-Tuks.

    Some are home-made, others are commercially-produced by companies like Piaggio, as we even have them in the UK (not many though), and they’re fairly common in southern and eastern Europe.

    The simplest ones are even more primitive and are based upon a rugged little piece of machinery called a “mechanical donkey” a.k.a. “peasants tractor”. Unlike Tuk-Tuks, those are driven by just the front wheel which has the motor and fuel tank  mounted directly atop the wheel.
