Bickerton Portable in Hong Kong

Someone in Hong Kong bought a Bickerton Protable recently.

Bickerton was the first genuinely portable folding bicycle which inspired Andrew Ritchie to design the Brompton bicycles in 1970s.

However, the manufacturing of the Bickertons has already stopped for almost 20 years.
