1998 Sapper Zoom Bike



The Zoom Bike was a folding bike designed by noted German industrial designer Richard Sapper.  The bike was introduced to the public at the 1998 Frankfurt Auto Show.  60 prototypes of the bike were built by Elettromontaggi, an Italian company, but it never went into commercial production.
