The guy in the picture is one of the many porters who crowd the bus stops or railways stations in India. One strong guy I should say, the bike weighs in excess of 150 Kgs(330lbs). The irony is that for all the hardwork he would probably get less than $2 for this. Sure you wont see this in the US. Definitely not so cheap.No wonder everything is being outsourced 😛
