Stuck in traffic, on the parking lot of a highway that is the 405, I have often gazed wistfully out my window at the passing motorcyclists: what freedom they seem to have! What ease and maneuverability! Unfortunately, (or not, depending on your point of view) I need the safety of fiberglass and metal surrounding me when I'm hurtling down the freeway at 75 miles an hour. Alvino Design has heard my prayers and combined both these elements into the Proxima, aka the Car-Bike.
The perfect mid-point between a motorbike and a car, the Proxima tapers from the front to the back, giving it the sleek maneuvarability of your traditional Harley motorcycle. The seating arrangement also mimics that of a motorcyle, with the passenger sitting in tandem to the driver, enhancing that back-of-the-bike thrill.
The sleek chrome and alloy exterior, and the discreet side door complete the transition from bike-into-car. And thus my fantasy is complete: all the joy of zipping between lanes of traffic, with none of the attending helmet hair (or spinal injuries). Forget the traffic of the 405; in this bike-car (car-bike?) I'd drive for fun all the way up the One. MR
