Hon Convertible

New addition to my folding family. A Hon Convertible. It looks like the stainless steel version. Everything is in great shape, minus the saddle and one pedal. Not sure of year, attached is a pic of rear drop out with some etching on it. This one makes No. # 9.

I think the stainless ones are worth having.

yeah you got it Jur .... they dont ride better than the painted ones from that era, but they are the much more collectible ones for sure.
I have seen people spending upwards of 500 dlr on ebay ....

I noticed a few Hon's on the web that have a laidback seatpost, where the top goes straight back for more aft adjustment. Does anyone know where I can get one, and what size will I need.

I also have been thinking of adding a larger rear cog for better gearing. I live where you can't go more then a 1 mile without having to go up some sort of hill.

I promise to keep all the orginal parts, if I ever decide to sale it.
