This set of 16 inch wheels with a Nexus 7 Speed IGH would be really cool on a Dahon Classic or Raleigh RSW.

There's two matching Dahon 5 speeds on the Shreveport La. Craigslist for 100. each and they look brand new. It's killing me...217 miles one way from Jackson Ms and I'm chompin' at the bit. Mrs. Cloud would not be amused, but at that price...argh. What to do?

Just picked up an older Dahon III "Quaker State" promo bike on CL in cleveland for $20 I'd link it but the seller has already deleted the ad. Can't wait to get new tubes and try this bad boy out...

I had never heard of the Dahon Gotham City until I saw this one on ebay. You can tell that this was the precursor to the Jetstream. Pretty cool looking bike.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Dahon-Gotham-City-Fold...=item3360ca23fa

I figured I would upload the photos for future reference on this site. Here they are.

Beware, I think this Atlanta seller must be a crack smoking meth addict.
He is trying to sell two Dahon Classics (non stainless) for ONLY $800 for the pair.

Nice bike, I looked at it yesterday. It has Schwalbe Marathon Plus 406 20 x 1.35 on it and is in good shape. I almost bought it

Here's a clean little Peugeot despite the fact that it's owner seems to think it's made out of plutonium. 410 bucks?? Good luck... Besides...The lion decal on the side along with that color puts it around the mid-eighties not 1973. Scammer.

Ah, now here's a much better deal than the one I posted above. 2 matching bikes for the same price and shock...they have the front fenders. I'm torn between going with the vintage stuff or a new more technical bike. Hmmm...

Yesterday I was at I Cycles shop and saw a pristine Dahon Classic 3 in red with an 84-11 SA hub. Rear mudguard was broken at the strut attachment point (nothing missing from what I could see); front guard was secure; tires looked new; hub needs adjustment. Chrome was exceptional as was the dolly wheel. Saddle was in great shape. No kickstand. No visible rust on the frame. It was in better condition than the one I bought on ebay earlier this year and it is a nice clean bike.
