Honda Hides a Bike in a Box
Designed to fit into the luggage compartment of the Honda City and Honda Today, the former’s trunk space actually being designed around its dimensions, the Motocompo was a little folding scooter sold from 1981–1983. Mechanically it wasn’t much to get excited about, with a 49cc two-stroke and centrifugal clutch, single-speed transmission, but its plastic body and retracting parts were undeniably cool—just like the Transformers, it was more than meets the eye.
Here’s a period Japanese-market Motocompo brochure we’ve dug up, presented complete and unedited in all its overwhelming Eighties cheese glory. Apparently it was quite useful for resting fruit on and taking to concession stands.
