I discovered a WheeledThing while wandering the galleries of West Chelsea!
At Chamber the Honda Motocompo, a “folding scooter”, is currently on display. It was made in the early 80s as a “Trunk Bike”. The idea was you would park your car… and pop out your scooter for your last mile. I think time has proven me right in stating this is still a bad idea.
It probably should be called – a handlebar and seat retracting scooter – but that probably sounds bad in Japanese too.
