I have a 1978 Stowaway.
I also have two big heavy Dutch bikes (Batavus Barcelona 3 Speed and Puch Brilliant 8 Speed), a Puch Pic-Nic fold-up and a little Kalkhoff fold-up which my wife uses. Some of the parts and concepts on the other fold-ups are similar to a Raleigh Twenty, this is another reason for my interest in this site. And I do like vintage 3 speeds as well.
I am a pragmatic older-bike enthusiast. If modern parts are easily available and will work as well as, or better than, the original spec I'll use or adapt them even though the bike won't look original any more.
