Oh Oh...N+1...strikes again! (Dahon Content)
My bride called from the local church thrift shop where she was dropping off a load of stuff from our early spring cleaning (the ground hog lied). They have a red and a blue folder, she sends cellphone pictures. Okay mid to late 80's Dahon III's, how much...make an offer...dunno have to see them. So the manager lets her bring them home for me to inspect. Looks like I am adding a couple more small wheeled bikes to the fold.
I think that brings the total to 7 or 8 small wheelers along with 25+ large bikes.
Does anybody know what year they used the Sachs Torpedo 3 speed? The red one has the Sturmey Archer AW dated 10 87, most likely making it a 1988 model. They are in okay condition and need some TLC, both are missing the rear fender, no racks and the seats are replacements.
Any idea of what I should have paid? Already made my donation, just want to make sure it was large enough.
Pictures as soon as I find the charger base for the camera.
Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
