Is It Ok To Buy A Three Wheeler ('Keke Marwa')?

I learnt from a newspaper advert that I can buy the popular three wheeler for 350,000 naira. Brand new.

And I want one because:

- I don't think I can get good car that's as cheap as this.

- I just need something to ferry me around town and carry my video gadgets.

Do you think it's a ridiculous idea? Imagine going to a wedding and arriving in a motorized tricycle!

Do you think a three wheeler works for private use? I feel it's safer and more useful than a motorbike.

Buy a four stroke model than the two stroke one.

Less maintenance and less noice.

Buy electric model than the kick start one.

It is safer than the motor bic and eaiser to travel in narrow roads than using cars.

Fix a sound system, "blast" and round the city.

It is a hit with girls.

With 300,000k already donated I know we can get Seun a '96-99 5sp 1.6l Sentra, or Civic  now lets find a way to ship the car and get it through NCS.

How high are the dealers willing to go.I just gave a basic estimate witth Seun paying for shipping and clearing with his N350k

Come on big guy!!!

Stop this, I mean really stop this,

Listen, there's what we call branding, image.

In Nigeria, if there's anything I know brings better cash, it's called packaging!!!

If you can get a Murano drop you off at this bash with your name you will be surprised clients will tripple your fees, but with a keke marwa, guy they'll be asking you to sleep overnight and still come back for your money.

Though I belong to the school of thought that it's OK to start from scratch, but not with 350k in your pocket!

Thats one side.

The other side is that security for your equipment, you know, I still don't believe it's you who actually intends to do this, cos for you to own the #1 site in 9ja, Guy, you got the brains to deliver more,

Finally, if you or whomever really needs a 3 legged something or anything, why not simply buy an ATV,

mEANWHILE, i should add that if you look really hard you can get a good car for: 350k.

Hi Seun,

The windows are dropped down from the roof top; they are indeed rain proof.

We also offer cargo type motorized tricycle to carry your equipments with 2 seats at the driver section; this definitely cost a little more.

Check the pics below.

i dont think its safe and if you ll be carrying eqipments with it remember you on about a country where armed robbers can simply ram you from the side or behind and simply rob you of everything,if you have a reliable person in the uk they can get you an accident car or ldv bus or ford which are really cheap, saw a bus for 500 pounds like a couple of months ago .especially ppl staying outside london

Oga Seun you are honestly not serious with this your keke, or how can you use keke to navigate the kind of terrian you described. Big stones! I mean that is enough to send your limo crashing on other rocks of Abeokuta. I honestly believe it is a joke, haba Seun you can afford any good ride you so desire. I just clicked on one google ad to at least increase your cash vault for a good car not 'keke marwa or napep' depending on who you are.

My imagination: Seun(Ok, i don't know what he looks like but don't try what i've come up with!) in a black three wheeler driving fast and rough through puddles on an untarred road while his laptop is blinking in beside  him, warning him about the miscreants on nairaland!!!  Goodness. . . .

3 wheeler ke? its not about the showing off thing, i can never buy it. Think about the intimidation all those danfo boys will give you, put you in the middle in tigt traffic , jump into ur front (na ur vehicle go wound pass) not to mention the big exhaust puffing trailers threatning to crush your 3 legged motor. i can hear them screaming 'were! gbe marwa kuro ni waju mi abi ofe ku ni?'

for other quiet places it might be safe but if you need to be on major roads in lagos pls dont, especially on 3rd mainland, wind fit blow am comot ontop bridge. there are good rides u can get for that amount u mentioned ask nairalanders help in ur search, besides when it really matters marwa have been known to disapoint, ever trust the Asian tech.

With what i saw on third mainland bridge yesterday i don't think keke marwa would help you. Also if it comes to free road i don't think the three wheeler can speed. Therefore the aim has been defeated.

I laughed when i read this and i figure tons of other people will laugh too when they see you going about town in this. However, it depends on how open minded you are and how much of a thick skin you've got. I know you to be an open minded fella Seun and if anyone is going to try this, it would be you. You should know that its no chick magnet though. . .

Seun its a thing of the mind, as u know in Naija, its the fella that pulls a four-legged monster thats d dude and happening one even if the ride cant go beyond Ijebu-Ode , just this morning I was actually thinking of getting a bike thats kinda safer than the conventional Okadas. At least to reduce the lagos traffic madness. Like I said if you can ignore the ''dem say'' syndrome, you are d man.
