Folders GALORE...and all Vintage and possibly Classic
The bike Gods are messing with me again...I have hauled in not one, not two but FOUR folding bikes in the past couple of months.
Most recently a pair of Dahon's, one is an oddball with a Sachs Torpedo hub,(1983/4?) the other is dated to 1987/88 by the SA AW hub.
The other "pair" are a Rixe and an Atala, I have yet to completely pin down the date on either one of them. The Rixe seems like a late 60's bike, the Atala a bit newer?
Here are the quick and dirty pictures. I will get beauty shots later. The Rixe is a very low end bike with some surprising nice components, the Atala is a decent build all the way.
Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
