One of Vic’s more unusual restoration projects in 2015 was an antique child’s rickshaw pedicab. “Golden Dragons” were handmade at Wen Fua Pedicab Manufactory in Taipei, Taiwan, China, they were painted bright blue with plenty of chrome trim. Weighing in at probably 400 lbs., this one, probably from the 1960s, would have sold for $175 new. Then, after sitting unused for decades it needed Vic’s careful attention to detail –which gave new life to a very unique bicycle.
