1999 CMK folding bike

Thomas Müller, a German industrial designer, was awarded a patent on this folding bike design in 1996.  He produced a prototype but the bike never made it into commercial production.  The interesting design with cantilevered wheels and a carbon fiber frame also featured folding handlebars.
