Bajaj RE4 Down On The San Francisco Street

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we admire interesting street-parked vehicles in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. You don't see many Indian vehicles down on the North American street, but Steve has found one.

Not so much car as motocycle/tent mashup, I found this Baja RE4 in Potrero Hill over the weekend.

It's Indian, not sure how it got here, but San Franciscians continue to find new vehicles to wiggle into tiny parking spaces. It even sports a custom paint job. Check out those flames on the front — subtle, yet enough to let one know you may unleash all 10hp when the light turns green. The front fender shows the scars of previous hoonage.

Some Googling around discovered it may experience issues in a monsoon. Good to know!
