From my trip to Brazil in 2009 with my S6-E



I miss that bike, it was my best Brompton ever.

Just felt the need to share.

The finish is a limited to already produced option
I hear They quit offering the clear lacquer paint over bare metal..
so there are not going to be an unlimited number..
all are to be a color of some sort .. henceforth ..

Would be the sort to get if you were going to get out the torch
and do brazeons, V brake Mods, etc. (at a $120 premium?)
I believe they use Powder Coat now.

The 2011 catalog continues to feature Raw lacquer as "color" choice. AS a matter of fact, I might consider getting one, but there is nothing limited about it, as far as I know.

there is a $100 up charge for any colors but black or red,
and so the Lacquer is just another $20 over that.

I think it is limited because they are in stock. I asked about a Se1 and was told that it would take 6 weeks to build and get into the shop.

Your bike looks really good, PDR. Now it is your turn to inspire me. I am going back to a Brompton!
