Unidentified Folder Size 24

We just finished assembly of a newly painted size 24 folder. We were not able to identify the brand or model due to faded stickers. Perhaps anyone who sees this bicycle would identify it's brand or model.
I'll be taking pictures later this morning and post it after the shot.

When I think of an air horn, I think of the horns on big transport trucks. Are the bicycle air horns loud like a truck horn?

Thanks for your thread. It has been very educational.

Randy, the air horn is made in China and bought mine in the local bicycle shop. Yes they are loud but not as loud as the ones on motor vehicles. Bought it when it first came out in the market for $12

That one looks really nice. We used to have the Miyata brand here in the US. Maybe we still do. I don't know.

Bridgestone Travzone

This came a week ago and got it from the importer this morning. This bicycle will have changes in parts and dismantling was done this afternoon. Will look for new tires and rims and plating of some parts of the frame. The seat is not original. This is the before look and in 2 weeks parts would be completed for assembly.

Sancycles,

how does your horn hold up in the rain? Is its operation hampered by water? Does it rust? Does your mount hold the pump without rotating around the handlebar? Are you happy with this horn?

I've got one like that but I am hesitating with putting it to the actual use. The fact that it came without any mount does not help in that either.

Thanks

Actually I haven't tested it during the rain. The pump anyway can be opened. No mount is included, I got the motorcycle side mirror mount to hold it. So far those alloy mounts can hold them.

Never seen it or heard of it, and it's clear that they are aiming to look like a Raleigh.

Million Tires

It's good I still got an extra set of Million 24 x 1 3/8 tires as replacement for the 24 x 1 1/4 tires of the Bridgestone Travzone. Got a set of Ukai stainless steel rims 24 x 1 3/8 from a LBS which was newly polish to mount the Million tires. Will try if it fits the bicycle frame.

Yes, you're right Tom it is definitely a look alike of the Raleigh Chopper. I just surf the Raleigh Chopper links and was surprised to see the original design. Thanks for the info.

The floral pattern behind the handlebar is a nice touch!

I read a rumor that those brake levers are now illegal here in the US, and I don't know why.

Bridgestone Travzone Up-date

I got the chromed parts of the Travzone frame and assembled the bicycle. We re-installed the original wheels 24 x 1 1/8 because installing the 24 x 1 3/8 size would require modification on the frame, thus damaging the chrome finish. Pictures will be taken this morning for posting. Now I have to order new tires from Japan because the size is not available here in the Philippines. The 24 x 1 3/8 wheels will again be on storage for future use.
