Default Not a Harley

Urban style for the two wheel set -- but not enough chrome for Fred's taste ;-)

I have since seen quite a number of these after thinking it was a one-off custom. Different trim levels, with some with very fancy leather seating, even with an enclosed side-car. Did not notice a seatbelt but it appears to have seat arms similar to tavern chairs -- the type that hold you upright no matter how many beers one has sampled. And it would appear to be a two stroke after the blue cloud following one down the strasse.

Been out for well over 10 years, you do not need to wear a helmet with it. As you are contain in the C1 in the even of a crash as you are strap in. And you get a fair amount of wind and rain protection. Plus it has ABS.

...yeah, this is an old design concept. One can endo this creation and just roll on when it comes around. ABS from Brembo is a super $ brake system. I'm not certain the C1 was ever made available in the USA.
