This is awesome.

BMW Zoombike Prototype. Germany, 1989

Commuter folder bike study from BMW with alumiunum framework. All integrated systems like 3-speed drive train, front and rear light with rechargeable battery. Carbon disc wheels.

Designed by Richard Sapper for BMW car company. Only some prototypes had been made, no serial production. Very original except upgraded Flite titanium saddle and brake levers.

Via.

Tyres.

Ade down at Sprocket cycles just got these in.

DSCF6242

Really nice folding tan wall ‘Criterium’ joints that will bless any vintage build. I am not entirely sure of the cost but I know they are cheap so go grip yourself a pair… Even if it just for the packaging!

Available in 700 x 19c and 700 x 23c.
