Bike In a Box: The Honda NCZ 50 Motocompo

Here's a nifty little bike I hadn't seen before. I gotta get me one of these πŸ™‚

The Honda Motocampo was designed and marketed as a scooter which could be easily stowed in the rear of a sub-compact car, enabling the owner an extra degree of freedom by taking his bike along for the ride. Sold (poorly) in Japan from 1981-1983.

The Motocompo was powered by an air-cooled 49cc 2-stroke motor, good for 2.5 horsepower @5000 RPM and 3 ft-lbs of torque. There's a single-speed automatic clutch transmission and ignition is provided via kick-start. The exhaust pipe is hidden behind one of the flat side panels, preserving the bike's sleek rectangular design. The scooter can go for well over 100 miles per gallon, with some reports of 120 mpg.

This thing looks like it's a perfect starter bike - even my mom could corner on it!
