    IIRC, that bike is unusual in the sense that it used stainless steel tubing.

    My uncle, a boat owner bought a Dahon stainless steel folding bike to have on his boat so he had basic transportation anywhere he lands. I suspect that many of these stailess steel bikes might have been and are being sold to boat owners because of their frame's corrosion resistance when used/stored in marine environments.

    Your bike has stainless steel main tubes connected by aluminum lugs. It uses a quill style seatpost with the adjusting nut on top of the post, just under the saddle.

    They ride very nicely, quiet and smooth.

    Only drawback, they weigh a ton.

    I had one once:
