look for: dahon sweet pea

Hi. I am new to the forums and I am looking to purchase a dahon sweet pea. Does anyone know where I can get a used one?

Much appreciated.

Dunno about used ones, but Toga in NYC usually has one or two in stock.

The Sweet Pea was only introduced in the 2005 lineup. Unless you are lucky enough to meet up with a owner who either wants to upgrade to a better model, absolutely hates the bike and wants to get rid of it fast, or might be stolen, you will probably not find one like the other Dahon models that have been in existance a lot longer. Besides, the price is only 300 dollars new.

I am in Hawaii and I think the shipping will kill the price. I will be patient and wait for a used one but like you said in your post I don't think anyone will give it up this soon.

Thanks for the input.

No need to wait. There's a Dahon stocking distributor in Honolulu.
