I have seen those bikes before, but I never knew they were called Donkey bikes. They look ridiculous.

I dunno, they look like they'd be alot of fun to ride around the neighbourhood on. They look a little twitchy to ride but must have been a ton of fun. Too bad nobody makes a reproduction of these.

Be useful for a path/subway ride. The small front wheel makes it that much easier to carry around.
