That may be true, but in the US these guys go for $50-$100.

This Bike Friday Tikit was posted again on Craigslist. Probably a small or medium. Hard to tell. Can't beat the price though. $729

Lots of Dahons available here.
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bik/799357620.html
I bought a Boardwalk 7 (more available) with a few small scratches from improper folding (thus tax free), I think it's a nice bike for the money. The seller also has new bikes but tax will be added; he retails them from his home and preps and checks all bikes prior to sale.
