Did you know?? Honda Used to Make a Briefcase Motorcycle You Could Carry Around!!

Who knew? Honda made mini-scooters that you could carry around like a briefcase in the early '80s! I wonder what one would be worth as a collectible these days? Here's the article and video detailing this neat invention, courtesy of the FW.com:
"These days cars come with some pretty sophisticated add-ons: rearview cameras that show what’s behind you, driver alert systems that wake you if you’re dozing off. These optional features are all well and good, but none of them hold a candle to the Honda Motocompo, a tiny, folding scooter that was sold as a trunk-sized accessory for the Honda City and the Honda Today from 1981 to 1983.
Equipped with a roaring 2.5-horsepower engine and almost three pound-feet of torque, these collectible briefcase bikes could reach speeds upwards of 18 miles per hour. With specs like that, it’s a wonder why they didn’t sell better."
