Nope... that bike is not a "real" Brompton. It's a licensed Brompton copy made by Neobike. Notice in the Ebay auction description, the seller calls the bike a "Brompton / Neo". This is why the bike looks a little... "off".

Here's more info on Neo-Bromptons...

If I had the money, I'd totally offer via PM 2 G's flat =[

I wonder if the brakes really clear the fenders. When I put fenders on my Dahon Mu SL (very similar bike in concept) I had to replace the v-brakes because it came with short reach items.

From the ad copy:


This is a special Limited "Airstream" Edition Birdy folding bicycle by Riese and Muller selling at NO RESERVE!! Great Christmas Gift!! I WILL SHIP this, but ebay wants me to specify shipping costs, and I can't do that because it will vary by loctation. Buyer must pay ACTUAL Shipping and Handling costs.

There are a number of Birdy limited editions, but I'm not sure how many. In addition to the Airstream, I'm aware of these:

Leica Edition (camera company)...

Bianchi Fretta...

Peugeot Edition.. (Also seen in pic above)

(I really love this heavily modified Peugeot Birdy)

....again, there's more special edition Birdy bikes out there, I just don't know where to find a comprehensive "list" of these bikes from over the years.

....BARBIE even had her own Birdy bike! :P

From the site I see : $315.00 + $84.79 = 399.79 shipped.. where'd you get the 373 shipped?

Huh? From the site I see: $315.00 + $58.61 = $373.61 shipped.. where'd you get the $399.79 shipped???

It could be that you see shipping from where you are located and the shipping fees are different?
