IN YOUR SHED
Honda Motocompo, ZX-7R, YZF600R, Harris Magnum, Yamagamma, GSX-R400, RGV250
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
