Apparently, there is a subculture in Japan where young boys dress up their bicycles with steel boxes and horns and motors and bling so they look like delivery trucks in India. It’s called dekochari, and Tony McNichol has a great photo gallery of them on his web site. I think this is the boy version of purikura—a way to show comraderie, creativity, and personal taste.

    I’d advertise on it.
