This chapter traces the history of the motorized tricycles used by disabled people in China. It argues that by tracing the genealogy of these tricycles, we can gain important insights into the ways in which the China Disabled Persons' Federation (CDPF) and canji were influenced by a distinct set of modernist processes of embodiment. The chapter discusses how various processes shaped popular understandings and experiences of canji.

Keywords:   motorized tricycles, disabled people, China, CDPF, canji
