    Local Dahon Speed 7 down the street for sale

    A neighbor down the street has a Dahon speed 7, is the only info i see on the bike,

    he is not sure year of manufactuer, or which model other than the Speed 7, but wants $180.00, it comes with a carrying bag. I am not sure what year it was manufactured.

    Are there any bad years for this manufacturer and model?

    It is a Light Blue not sure if a years run could be identified by the color or not.

    Any way of Identifying by components Rear Derailleur, or other?

    I have read a lot of the Older Dahon bikes develop frame cracks and break at weld joints leaving their riders with a bad accident and usually removes a few front teeth in the accident.

    I think Im going to pass on the Dahon.

    Check the serial number on it to see if it was a recalled model. If it's good buy it.

    2008 is the only date to look for -- and even that is fixable under the recall.

    Sounds like a deal.
