Interestingly there are no brakes, the way to slow down would be by applying your foot on the front tyre.

Most of the saddles were made of leather as seen in this bicycle.

I don't know if this qualifies here, we still have this cycle. Many of us would remember this type of cycles which were popular in the 70-80's. Made by Jyothi Cycles. A clone of BSA Champ. Don't know if this brand (Jyothi) still exists.
