I too was thinking about attempting to locate a Twenty to clean up and use as a folder in my bike collection. I wanted another internal geared hub bicycle that was dependable. I chose not to go that route due to the possibility of not locating the parts since that make is not manufactored anymore. I instead chose a very simple Dahon Boardwalk one speed to convert to a three speed. This proved to be much more satisfactory to me since the bike basically reflected the technological improvements that happened over the last 30 or so years (lighter weight, improved handleing characteristics, improve frame sizing, available parts, improved quick released latches) and yet still had the best of the old Twentys (sturdy, dependable, non-derailleur orientated, minimalist steel frame that can be easy to bend and repair-within safe reason to accept whatever enclosed rear hub you want.) This is a great bike to modify and play out your bike fantasies on!
