Falter Folding bikes-any info out there?

Being a 'folding' nube, I'm not sure what to make of these

Seems similar to Raleigh 20????
I've considered a folder to take on the Metra (suburban) Train, but my budget won't allow a new one.

Any and all info appreciated.

It is more like the Flying Dutchman Folding Bicycles I remember from a Glendale CA bike shop which sold them in the 1970s: If the pair are in as good condition as the photo suggest, I would buy them as I really enjoy bikes from that time. But do be warned that the 70s folding bikes are a bit more primitive than modern folding ones. They don't fold as neatly or compactly and they are really heavy. But they seem to pass the test of time.

And some more information about these imported early 70s bikes from earlier inquiries about these bikes: and

And a photo at Flickr:
