Rescued from the local recycling centre last autumn, but saved for a spring project. Minus back wheel, saddle and chain guard at the time, but I had a spare set of wheels and saddle. Chain guard found on Ebay (Hercules branded). Have since fitted longer seat post, and have a new set of Raleigh Record tyres waiting. Replaces a similar blue Hercules, which was stolen a couple of years ago.
Always get puzzled looks, when someone asks to borrow a 'Phillips screwdriver' and I hand over a non-crosshead type from my toolbox!

Should that read "Phillip's Folda"? Nice original bike, bet it rides well. I've got one of these, in the same colours, but was a bit mangled when I got it, bent and incomplete hinge mech, quite rusty, with slightly bent forks, a near seized rear SA hub, missing seatpost and saddle and damaged rims. It is interesting that it still rides ok, despite the seat tube and head tube being at different angles. I swapped the wheels for some alloy rims from a Raleigh Krush, so it is now a single speed. The mudguards and chainguard were beyond redemption, due to rust and I etched and hammer-rite painted the handlebars black..

A great collection of bikes and photos! Thanks for the info, and for sharing. Look forward to the next addition
