The Folding Electric Mini-Farthing

This is the folding electric bicycle inspired by the large-wheeled penny farthing popular in the late 19th century. The smallest folding electric bicycle in the world when measured by its 43-liter volume—the reason for which it holds the Guinness World Record—it compacts to 23 1/2″ L x 6″ W x 23 1/2″ H in just 20 seconds for easy transport or storage. Providing a top speed of 14 mph, a 450-watt electric DC motor drives the 20″ front wheel while the 8″ rear wheel provides steering. A rider up to 220 lbs. sits in an upright position with the handlebars at the sides rather than in front—gentle leaning to either direction assists turns.
