That's a freakin 4-seater dinner table fitted at the back
I saw this exact same car-cum-dining table at ECR Speedway in Chennai a few days back, couldn't take a photo though since my phone was dead. All the time it had me thinking 'Why? Just Why??'

Now, I'm not sure if this bike is ridden by a differently abled person or if its just a plain whacky mod job! If ridden by a differently abled person, I wonder how he operates the clutch!

But there are no side wheels either.
Confusing, that one!

doesn't need it maybe; could be an amputee (lost his toes to frostbite or any other sort of bite?)

Moved my Rolls Royce Phantom post to the international weird & wacky thread. Only Indian cars here please

It's easy to see where he took his inspiration from. The ugliest car ever sold in modern times - The Pontiac Aztek. I've driven one in my student days and trust me, it looks even worse in person.

I know what you mean! It was even more weird seen from rear three quarters. Coincidentally, I was in US that time and it was hard to imagine the GrandAm GT and the Aztec on the same showroom floor.

This mod reminds of Peugeot designs ( Hammond's peugeot face..Topgear fans will know )

Looks rather a crude inspiration from Peugeot 208..

This can be case of a person with an amputated leg from or below the knee. So, the limb muscles can very well be used to change gears and ride with ease. Good desi mod job.

Using the thigh muscles to shift gears, though tough, could be quite possible as the Splendor has the neutral at the end; and not slotted between 1 and 2, which could prove to be a nightmare to find!

There are no side wheels. So it can't be a leg amputee; maybe toes, yes. Its not possible to ride a bike with one good leg. Planned stops aren't a problem; it's the emergency ones that'll catch you unawares and might turn out to be disastrous.

Perhaps, this could be the source of inspiration for Toyota too, for the Etios Cross.

Came across this Nano with a weird rear and a funny paint job at Kochi, today. It also has, a Live to Drive fake sticker, to boot.

Believe you me, I shared the pic only after reaffirming with my friend whether it was a forwarded pic or an actual spotting!

But, that wouldn't have given him the leg room he now has, would it?
