Check this 'classic' Dahon out!

$1500 Dahon

It's new so it couldn't have been Princess Di's or anything...

I crashed on one of these when that crappy front end assembly came apart while I was riding.

Sometimes the words "Classic" and "Vintage" should simply be translated as "Old POS!"

That bike and price is a joke.

lol . I saw that bike since months ..... the guy who has listed it is probably thinking that there is a dumm person born every minute, and he just have to wait for the right one....

it is of course ridicoulous at best, I really like Ebay for all kinds of reasons, but its buyer beware for sure.....

still its better than the fake chinese auctions for high priced Dahons starting at one dollar, where the seller does NOT have the bike and wants to get paid with western union... I am trying my best to have these fraudulent listings removed and I am pretty successful with that endevour as he has dsiiapeared since the last month.

Anyhow ... its a funky listing alright .... still somewhat dissapointed that I didnt win the twenty frame the other day ... sniff

You should have sniped the auction! It only went for a few quid over the first bid!
