    As shown, it is a project bike, in need of an overhaul to overcome 30+ years of neglect. I'd say FMV of $75 +/-. I buy unused Dahon's in Michigan for only a few bucks more and can double my money in NYC.

    I know, I know, it sounds like the reverse of this episode of Seinfeld:

    Nice looking folder. Looks to be in good condition. I am actually looking to buy a couple folding bikes. If yours popped up on Chicago CL at $125 or so, I would be first in line.

    An overhaul? Its a 3 speed folder. Clean it up, squirt some oil in the hub, its ready to ride.

    Surely the hub and bb bearings need to be regreased. I am cleaning up a Sting Ray for a friend of mine, and the hubs are bone dry.
