I work for a charitable center and occasionally people donate bikes. Most of the time we try and sell them to raise money for the center. Today someone told me of this possible folder thinking I may want to get it. I was looking for a beater type bike to learn basic bike mechanics on besides having a backup for my backup.
It's a bit of a plus if it's a folder. However, I'm not sure what it is and whether or not it can fold anymore. See pics below:

Notice the lever in the 2nd pic. It unscrews and normally I think the bike would fold (at least in half) but right now it doesn't. It's been painted it seems.
Needs new brakes, tubes, the chain seems pretty shot and it needs a good cleaning. It's a one speed. The same style of lever is on the seat post and it seems to be covered in a thickish amount of harden sand. The springs/coils of the saddle are pretty rusted.
Long term project that's for sure.
But I'm curious to know what model/make it is. Does anyone know.
If the pics are too small I've found that if you double click on the image, it gets bigger.
