Owner: Mar­tyn Card, Derby Owned for: six months

So far: RC30 paint, just wait­ing for V5 What’s next? a big-bore kit

The Mo­to­compo was Honda’s an­swer to traf­fic con­ges­tion; a 50cc two-stroke that folds away to fit in a car boot, mak­ing a re­spectable 2.4bhp! I had it painted in RC30 colours to match the VFR750R that I re­cently re­stored. It’s a bit self-in­dul­gent but it gets peo­ple’s at­ten­tion. Dream Ma­chine came up with the de­sign and I think they did a su­perb job. Once it’s on the road I am buy­ing a 57.5cc big-bore kit to hike up the power to a mas­sive 3.5bhp, so it’s head­ing to­wards sports­bike ter­ri­tory!

Bit like a match­ing dinghy on one of those flash boats
