I have never been interested in folding bikes but I recently was given the Dahon Classic III. I have it in my shop with the shifter and cable removed soaking in power steering fluid hoping to free the cable. Is this bike worth fixing?
There is some surface rust and the bolts have some rust but not a lot. I put some polish on the wheels and they come out looking pretty good but I can tell the rust spots are still there, just smaller.
The wheels are true but the front wheel is not quite aligned with the back wheel. I am sure I can make it ridable so I intend to keep at it but I am not sure if I want to keep it. I'll ride it awhile before I decide.
It is a three speed internal shifter.
Well what do you think?
