Dahon 16" Stainless Steel Convertible (circa 1986?)
 
I recently bought this on ebay with the rear fender missing - does anyone know how "collectable" these are? On ebay there was one that went for >$1K but looked like everything was in tack, the rear fender is missing on mine (did not realize before I bought it!).

Also, does anyone have a manual they can share as I do not know how to set-it up properly!

If anyone is interested in buying, there is some restoration on the nuts/bolts which were not stainless...

thanks,
Amy

I have a plain steel classic from about the same year, but it came with a manual, which I posted here:

It just happens to be a manual for a stainless model. Good luck.

What do the other pages not scan say? Would you consider selling the manual?

The stainless ones are quite popular among collectors especially the Far East.

I posted a pdf version of the Stainless Manual here: http://www.dahon.com/forum/index.php...e=post&id=3224

The other pages I didn't scan are general stuff about bicycling & safety. If you want to know about the Sturmey, go to Sheldon Brown's articles, and/or hubstrippers. It's too bad Dahon didn't provide more support for the early bikes.
