modernmechanix: Motorbikes Speed Home Repairs.

Via modernmechanix
"When anything goes wrong in the house, from the furnace to the radio, a Los Angeles, Calif., resident has but to step to the telephone and at his call instantly one of a fleet of repair motorcycles will come whizzing to the rescue. The organizer of this novel service first got together a large staff of experts in many household crafts and trades. Then he equipped them with speedy motorcycles.

The odd shape of the vehicles, patterned after bungalows, attracts attention as they speed through the streets and results in making his service more widely known. Each of the men employed is bonded and is thoroughly trained in his line as an electrician, radio repair man, plumber, carpenter, or expert in gas fixtures."

Similar to a service in New Zealand, they're calling it "dial a husband" ... just about any handyman job will get fixed for you.
