It looks like any number of rather cheap and nasty folders that dominate the Ebay folding bike listings - like this
which all retail for around £70. However if anything it appears rather cheaper and nastier than any of them - the hinge looks less than impressive, the pedals and cranks rather horrid and the handlebars and stem not nice either. Plus I'd bet it weighs a ton. On the positive side, it does have mudguards.
I personally wouldn't dream of doing 11 miles on it. Particularly with no gearing (put tin hat on and waits for fixie brigade to tell me I am wrong). Possibly a few hundred yards to the shops and back, but that's about it. But do let us know if you decide to try it!
