Bit of history on the bike:
The Honda Motocompo is a folding scooter sold by Honda 1981–1983.Released in red, yellow, and white variants, the Motocompo was introduced as a "Trunk Bike" to fit inside subcompact cars like the Honda Today and the then new Honda City. The City's baggage compartment was actually developed around the Motocompo. The handlebars, seat, and foot-pegs fold into the scooter's rectangular plastic body to present a clean, box-shaped package of 1185 mm L × 240 mm W x 540 mm H. It is the smallest scooter ever built by Honda. The company's initial monthly sales projection for the domestic market was 8,000 City and 10,000 Motocompo. The City surpassed its targets, but in all only 53,369 Motocompos were sold by the end of production in 1983 (no more than 3,000 per month). It was marketed in conjunction with the City in television ads featuring British ska/2-tone band Madness.Honda City and Motocompo display at Honda Collection Hall in MotegiThe Motocompo maintains a cult status among compact bike enthusiasts for its unique design, stylized logo, and highly customizable potential.
