I haven't even thought of taking a pic of them. But I could if you want to see it (them). I don't know if it is anything special in the folding bike world, with people paying upwards of $2000. for Bromptons and Bike Fridays, etc. I bargained a bit with the store clerk who I think was actually the store manager and got a total of about $160 knocked off the price and paid $400. a piece. They are aluminum and basically all silver. Has mudflaps, and yes the handlebar stem does not telescope which I thought might be a problem, but when I rode it, it is perfect the way it is. I bought a gel seat and cheapo bell to make it legal (illegal here without a bell no matter what type).
Anyways, regardless of whether it is considered a cheap bike in the folding bike world or not, I am happy with the ride of it and am looking forward to Tuesday when we take a mini camping trip to a park that has a lot of paved roads throughout it so we can really break them in.
