    Uh, its a Raleigh Stowaway. Its a version of the Raleigh twenty. Look up the date code on the Sturmey Archer hub. Endless amount of information on the web on the Stowaway and even more so, the Twenty. Value limited depending on your market. More popular in urban markets. Here in Hooterville it would not bring much. In NYC, it might bring 3X the Hooterville price.

    There's an entire forum dedicated to the Raleigh Twenty.

    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.
