    Finally got a folder

    I responded to a CL ad that said Dahon Folder $75 and that was pretty much it. When I got there it is a Dahon Boardwalk 7 speed in near mint condition. I got him down to $60, straped it it the back of my UTE bike, and home I went. Can anyone tell me the year of this Dahon and if I paid too much?

    I have been eyeing them for a while and I am a C&V bike flipper so I know a good deal on a bike when I see one. I will probably keep it for the summer and then sell it for $120 to a local college kid when school starts in Aug.

    I am really in search of a good deal on a Brompton. One day... one day.

    He sold the other one before I got there or I would have bought them both.

    I was surprised to see this model in the U.S. I don't believe Dahon has offered the Boardwalk D7 here for a long time, so perhaps it was purchased overseas.

    Looks like the second one has already made its way back on to CL:
