Looks a bit homemade to me. But did see some pics on the forum a few months back of a nasty asian folding bike using a similar concept - but can't lay my hands on the thread at the moment.

But what about the "swingbike" - - do these count as -sort-of - folders? There seem to be a lot of enthusiasts for them on the alt-bike forum...

edit - here we go the Giatex Sliding bike. Nice...Which got some good reviews - including here

Somewhere between looking at the suicidal swingbike and exotic chinese folding bike designs, I came across this foldable chopper. I know slightly /wholly OT - but would you ride?
