A man cleans the secondhand spare part of a vehicle at a shop in Colombo's Panchikawatte Road October 23, 2013. The area is frequented by the middle class and is known for shops that stock on Japanese and European secondhand vehicle spare parts. The spare parts are sold for between 500 to 100,000 Sri Lankan Rupees ($3.80 to $765), and vendors say business has been brisk as brand new parts are expensive to purchase.
