Len in the U.K. Bought for 0.99 on eBay. Painted with an aerosol 70s colour, MG "Bracken" and two part clear lacquer. Lightened frame (including much fettled hinge flanges) braze on V brakes, wooden guards (fenders) and alloy stays (all self made) Sturmey Archer crank with folding pedals, Shimano 7 speed groupset with twist shifter. Bars are too low, will fit a quill extender soon and needs a bigger chain wheel. A relaunch of a classic and better looking than a Dahon? Dismayed however by the flexible frame compared to Reynolds tube diamond designs, hey ho, you get what you pay for! Picture taken in front of my son's shop, Hart's Cyclery, Edinburgh U.K.
