Otoyo folding bike

Received this from an older gentlemen, said he bought it in CA several years. Has anyone heard of this brand of bike. It likes like an older Dahon. Check out my Flickr Account

Looks pretty cool... almost like a BMX folding hybrid... how many speeds (couldn't see on the pics)...

Certainly looks better than a citizen bike...

It has a 5 speed freewheel, I agree much better then my Citizen. Getting ready to take somemore pics, will be putting them on my Flickr account. For some reason I can't get the pictures to downsize to fit on the page.

I was checking over the bike this morning and I noticed the hub is threaded on both sided. Does this mean I can put a fixed gear sprocket on it if I wanted to, or is it for a smaller freewheel option.

I also noticed it doen't have road style drop outs, it has the kind you see on bmx's, track and coaster bikes.
