    Yep I sold a refurbished one just last weekend. Made by Eska. The name Eska can be found engraved/punched under the bottom bracket shell. They are characterised by a bulbous head tube and folding with the chain to the inside.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the Eska Czech?

    My Eska was named a Revan, but I'd already seen it looked the same as other bikes named Eska. Then when I stripped the frame to paint it, I found the name Eska engraved under the BB shell. I think it is one of those OEM deals - one place churns them out, other places stick their own brand on them and out they go.

    Found one ... w00t !

    : o )

    Had a cousin tark, er ... I mean, track one down & an uncle ship it ... Its "in the mail" .

    The "older" kind :





    Looks like they *should* have a bunch of cool parts in standard : Tool " free " quick release, & spare wheel in car type dealio to operate/adjust/lock the quill stem, dynamo powered front & rear lights , fenders, rack, coaster brake , kick stand, etc ...



    Not to be confused with, the "newer" ones that are still being made. 2 versions available, a folding one and a non folding one. Non folding you need tools for. :



    Yikes !

    :barf:

    Prolly not gonna strip the paint, to see who actualy makes it ...
