Judging on the photo, you may think there are two vehicles, a mini-car and a bike, but someone came with the ideea to build a hybrid between the two. This may be a logical ideea since the "side-cars" are very popular around the country.
It is well known that Filipino's are creative and there were some vehicles built in this country, many of them first of their kind, different from everything seen before. Several other car and bike mixtures have been built in the country as there is also a name for vehicles that mix the car and bike parts, called "Kotse-Kel".
This vehicle is the invention of Filipino Lyndon Olba of Bangar and named La Union. The first copy has been built in 5 months and the bodied "sidecar" offeres in the bodied part, two seats, a cooler and a rear luggage compartment.
Several copies have been built, each one with it's individualised details (grille, windows, spoilers, fenders, paint scheme, etc) but generally they have the same body shape as the body is made of fiberglass, using the same molds.
Price is set around 60.000 Pesos.
