scooter bike

I saw this odd bike like object at a rack near Harvard.  At first I thought it was a folder because of the size of the wheels.  But it clearly has a footbed like a scooter, and no sign of a missing seat or seatpost location.  The "downtube"  says Dashboard.

What I thought was interesting is that most scooters are toylike, not real transportation.  But this one has full fenders like you would use it for getting places even in inclement weather.  And it had the kind of scale and sturdiness that makes it seems more adult.
