    Red Fuji Folder

    I got this classic Fuji folder for $50 in October for my son so we could ride together. The crank was loose so I serviced the BB, wheels, and brakes today. It's 15 speed (3 x 5) Shimano group and freewheel.
    It doesn't have much wear other than some rust on the brake lever adjustment screws. I replaced the original seat and folding platform pedals. The rear flatted immediately (tube failure at stem).

    Did you find it on Craigslist?

    Yes, the seller kept it in his pickup truck so he could bail when the truck broke.

    I'll have to take another picture. You can see the pivot point - the front part of the tirangle just ahead of the saddle. The bike folds in half with the front wheel swinging around to meet the rear. The handlebar has a quick release and swings 90 degrees to parallel the top bar. It had platform pedals that fold upward.
