Help ID this 1970 Folding Bike

The pedals were made in Germany of all places Some goofball slopped silver paint over the headset and fenders and chainguard but I got it off .the fenders had a green stripe down the middle and were chrome plated steel but were toast under the silver so I smoothed it and resprayed .The coaster must be as gummed up as the head tube bearings because it stops slow. Guess I will have to learn how to pull it apart.Any tips? Value? There is a couple holes in the frame for a wire for a generator light which was broken.Maybe I'll throw one on.

Try the vintage board. The badge seems to say Tomos, which was a 70's brand that may be making mopeds today. Search on [Tomos bicycle] for some info.

The about Tomos says it is Slovenian in origen if I read it right.

You might send a picture of the chainwheel to http://www.blackbirdsf.org/chainwheels/. They have a chainwheel gallery. The fancy chainwheel could be worth $20 or so as it would look good on a fixed gear.
