Need help identifying a folding bike I'm fixing up
I bought this thing about 5 years ago for $5 at a garage sale. It was blue originally, but the finish was shot, and the decals were nearly gone. Wheels were rusted severely, chain was as stiff as a metal bar, was pretty sad. I wanted it because I was (at the time) thinking a folding bike would be slick for college, but I bought a cruiser instead. So this has been on the back patio ever since waiting for something. Back when I bought it, I sanded the frame down, hit it with some satin red rattle can paint, and bought a cheap bike at walmart for parts (wheels, tires, handle bars, chain, etc.) And I bought a smaller sprocket since the school had it's share of hills. I'm looking into media blasting it now and having it powder coated, and give it a rear wheel with a 3-spd coaster hub. Needs a nicer rear rack, and all the clamps replaced (not tool-free anymore, need plies and a wrench to do anything with it). The big center hinge is in good shape, but the cam on the bolt that is supposed to tight it is worn off it seems, or bent.
It's a mess right now, has plenty of rust from sitting, and the paint is pretty rough. But I was curious, can you guys figure out by looking at it what bike it actually is? The frame style seems kind of unique, haven't seen another around like it, pretty heavy duty actually. Just kind of curious what exactly I bought for 5 years ago for that ever expensive $5 :p There's no name on it anywhere that I can see stamped into it, just some really hard to read numbers on the bottom of the frame where the crank is.
