I bought another folder!

Hi Chaps & Chappesses

I was in Hamburg and saw a 'Falter' 26" wheeled single speed folder in a classic bike shop.
It is now back in Blighty, in nice original condition, even tools in the toolbag, needs cleaning up and a new lock, it rides very nicely.
Pics to follow when I've rested after driving from Paris today.

Falter..... the name of a bike company in Germany ..I think it was Cologne ?
is somewhat missleading when u talk about a folder .... or FALTrad ..ie.. ein falter .... verb is : falten ...
in this case however it means Butterfly ... or "falter" and nothing to do with folding

just saying
cool find

You are absolutely right old chum, there is a cast butterfly headstock badge & several butterfly transfers (decals)
