Katakura Porta Silk

hi,

I recently got a katakura porta silk fold up bike (was sitting in aunts back yard).

Its rusted, everything is pretty bad, but im looking to make it rideable.

The folding crank seeems like bad news, and is 'janky' when pedals.

Does any one know the bottom bracket shell specs?

Rear Hub Spacing?

Sorry no pictures yet. but if you quick google search it, you'll see the handle bars. They are whack, and i want to replace the quill stem/handle bars, but the hold ones are so long. Gotta brain storm.

We will need lots of pics in order to be able to truly help you out. This is an obscure brand/model that probably very few have heard of.

Sounds like you should buy some Oxalic acid.
