Zero Emission Machine

A commercial attempt to replicate the short-journey benefits of the motor car, using pedal-power.

This is the four seater version (they made a two seater too) of the formidable ZEM.

Although it was never going to be the fastest bike on the planet, motorbike brakes, individual freewheels and gearsets for each rider and suspension on all four wheels made it a very capable machine on the road.

Desgined by Rudi Frey in Switzerland, and manufactured in Germany, the ZEM had only limited success, and production ceased.
