For prospective Raleigh 20 owners

Item No. 280136125991 on ebay.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ayphotohosting

Shipping is kind of steep, the bike looks to be in fair condition.

The guy seems to be lying or ignorant about the Brooks saddle though.

Not affiliated with the seller in any way, just thought I'd mention it since they're so popular here.

While I'm at it, here's a nice-looking Fuji folder:

Another Raleigh 20, with a sparkly banana seat. All it needs is the buckhorn handlebar...

Actually, Brooks did make those plastic saddles as well in those times.

Interesting. It looks cheesy enough that I wouldn't think Brooks would want their name on it. Were they of good quality?

Here's another cheap ebay folder, I had one of these, and it wasn't bad at all. Just not that fast.

The rear suspension worked well. It's a 3 speed with derailleur, and those funky BMX knobby tires. It is sturdy enough for a bit more than just gravel trails. The bag it comes with is good. They stopped making these a year or two ago, which is a shame. With road tires and a bigger chainring, this could be quite a bargain in a packable bike.

Probably is a Brooks made saddle, even though not leather.
