Encouraged by Dynocoaster's success I looked at the nearby Craigslists:

A Brompton for $250.

A Raleigh 20 for $125.

Hmmmmmm. I wonder what my wife would say if I ....

An unusual one here on ebay, not exactly handy for the train, plane or bus.

A-Bike

Anyone want an A-bike?

Can't tell if it's authentic or a knock-off, but the price is good.

Anyone want a job lot of 5 - yes - that's *5* Raleigh Twentys in various states of repair?

Cherry-pick the best bits, reassemble and sell the rest - a sure fire way to resto heaven I'm sure...

Nice find on the Twentys, Pixel! It seems that the UK folks have a much more ready (and reasonably-priced) supply of Twentys than over here in the states.... I even saw one listed on the Boston CL for $350.

In that vein, here's a Twenty in NYC for $100 asking price. Not an amazing deal, but if you were hankering after one and tired of seeing people ask $200+ for it (because it's vintage, don't-you-know), this may do.

Originally listed at $179. I was real tempted, but didn't go after it.

Check this thing out.

The fold is fairly sophisticated for the vintage and it's got a great look.

Brompton with Schlumpf and large front bag - $900.00

Guess it's a deal with the Schlumpf. Could be negotiable.

I just did a search on a random whim, and I saw this before you posted here, and I have asked the seller if he would post to Oz. I hope for the best! I definitely want this one. Here's hoping another forum member doesn't snap it up before me! The Helios will pay for my Mini.
