Becak, Jalan Maliboro.

Some normal becak have had a small motorcycle engine slung underneath, 2014

This looks like a machine for cutting off the toes of tukang becak.

Becak Motor, A few becak in Yogya have been motorised, 2010.

In 2014 There were many more motor becak in Yogya.

Compare this Yogya becak with the becak of Penang, Solo and Makassar below

Becak Penang, low, heavy with support for a parasol.

Becak Solo, the sides of the chair are like butterfly's wings, and the mudguard deep and flat.

But the best becak are the lightweight, racy becak of Makassar, 2012
I have more becak photos at, Becak Makassar.

Motor Becak Medan. In 1990's there were many pedal becak, not in 2014.

BSA Motor Becak, North Sumatra

. . . or how about this motorised becak, or bentor, in Makassar, 2012
I think that there were 6 children & two adults in this bentor

These are Becak Motor in Rantepao, Sulawesi, 2014

This is me, Pete Loud, in a pedal rickshaw in Agra, India in 1974.

There are other forms of mass transport in Yogya ;-)
