I just picked up (for a steal) a perfect condition Tigra Folding commuter bike. I am looking for any information anyone may have about this bike. I have scoured the Googles and can't find anything on it other than the fact that Tigra used to build bikes and sponsored a race team.
Here's what I know:
Metal badge on the headset tube - TIGRA. Numerous decals stating "Suiss Made" or "Manufactured in Switzerland"
Weinmann brakes (back when they were based in Switzerland), Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub.
Renard leather saddle with little hanging tool pouch below the saddle.
Front and rear light generator mounted on the front fork - and it works. Also made in Switzerland.
I don't have pics, but it looks like a typical folding bike from the 1960s. 20x1.75 tires. Weinmann rims.
It has a thumb operated bell with a raised TIGRA logo on it stamped in the metal.
