How small (big) Does your Raleigh Twenty fold to?

Looking for some dimensions.
As you all know, the Raleigh isn't the best bike to haul around
Planning to DIY a bike bag with shoulder straps (two perhaps) of some sort.

I ride a Phillip's Twenty which is the same bike as the Raleigh 'cept cooler since it's a Phillips.



Seriously... you need a duffel bag to stash a Twenty as they were made to be folded and more easily stored rather than folded and carried.

They also curb out at 34 pounds from the factory although with a little work you can bring that weight down significantly.
