Kevin Kelly’s Street Use has these (and other) pics of motorcycles and bikes, used in the Dong Dae Mun Market of Seoul, to circulate heavy loads around town. Says the photographer:

These bikes are the grease that make the market smooth, you see them ferrying ridiculously big loads for 500 metres or so to where the products are needed… Note the carefully street modded/welded carrying beds with 90 degree load supports. I’ve seen fridges, washing machines and dish washers carried on these things without trouble, even the bicycles.
