It's lovely. So that probably means we won't see in the US!

Anyone know where I can find that front rack or something similar that would work with a Dahon D7?

It's available at Wiggle.com for $562 and free shipping to the US.

And it's available in orange.

I bought a black one from them, and wouldn't be surprised if it's the only one in the US. The rack got smushed in shipping so I just took it off..it's cheap, heavy steel.

Overall it's a decent knockaround bike with low stepover, but kinda heavy with the hi-ten frame..not as easy to carry up a flight of stairs as you would think. Also be aware that the cranks are a very short 160mm. Cool bike, but I didn't use it much so I sold it last month.

Of course someone on BF had/has the bike. So it looks prettier than it rides. Guess my trusty old Dahon will do as the mini-velo townie.
