indentify this bike from a vaugue description 2!

Ok. No success on the York bike in the other thread. This bike is more interesting. Seen in rome. It would be good to know what this was it looks nice.

The main thing about this unusual folder(?) is that it had a front and rear folding strut like the one on the front of a dahon classic. It was black and I recon 305 etro wheels. Rack I think, and wide tyres about 2 inches like big apples.

It may have been electric. It may have had a square or rectangular seatpost tube, possibly full suspension.
It looked quite sophisticated. Maybe discs.

It looked like a jango flick and if it was not for the struts that would have been my guess. I don't think it was a jango with odd accessories however.

I think it was electric as she was not pedalling hard but moving smootly in 39 decree heat.

Any ideas....
Don't see what the front and rear chrome struts were for if not folding guides. So I am 95 per cent sure it's a folder.

It's none of the recent 2 dahon models with a strut. Ie jiffo

I think its time you asked your doctor to change your medication, its clearly giving you hallucinations.

A quick google image search found this:

Hi cpg.
I don't think it's the "one second folding bike" thingy with electric. It's not a bad likeness , and it does have a flat tubing area. It lacks the rear strut. And the front strut went up to the stem area. Both were silver coloured.

Not sure it had mudguards either....details.
Or mag wheels. Standard spokes afacr.

Back to the medication............
This is some good stuff man.......

might have been this bike

Along time ago now.
This bike looks like it has rear struts but the front tubing looks right and it is electric. So maybe this was the bike I saw.
WI panasonic electric folder
