Honda Motocompo scooter-1984
This Honda scooter is designed so the handle bars and the seat can be folded down so it can be loaded into the back of a car. It was originally designed to fit in the back of the Honda City Turbo, a small hatchback car. As Japan has monumental traffic jams, the theory was one could park the City in a convenient parking lot, unload and unfold the MotoCompo, and continue one’s commute. Although this sounds like a great idea, the fact is the scooter weighs about 90 lbs., so loading and unloading it from the car is no easy task.
