I found these scans of an old brochure for the “Moto Compo” scooter. As the brochure states, it’s a “trunk” bike.
What this means is it can fold up and fit in the trunk of your car.
Why didn’t this great idea catch on? Well take a look at the guy in the picture below riding it.
Would you be caught dead riding a Moto Compo? I certainly wouldn’t. Anyways, I love the crazy 80’s styles. It’s funny how Japanese ads often use white people to sell cars or scooters. Especially ones that would never be sold in western countries.
By the way, click on the photos to enjoy their full splendor.
