    Info needed on old Schwinn Folding Bike

    Does anyone remember the old schwinn folding bikes from the early 1970's? I think it was called a runabout, and had a high seat post, high handlebars and came in green. I am trying to locate one.

    The obvious eBay, craigslist. You may want to post "bike wanted" ads.

    Is this it?

    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.

    I vaguely remember that Schwinn model. It was intended for the older retired crowd. It was somewhat of a flop if memory serves. I modeled my Brompton after this and other 60s and 70s bikes that I owned or still own. I think that bike is superior over the older ones.
