    Plus only a limited number manufactured. That is why it's priced at the lowest bid point of US $2,900.00 up to an expected US $3,499.00 outright price (don't forget to include that the Buyer pays $50 for shipping as well for either purchase option). As for it being worth it, personally, I rather doubt it very much. A bike is still just a bike, rare or not. It is for riding, not for gawking or hanging up as a art piece display only.

    The pricing is not much more than the new latest models of Dahon & Tern bikes I saw just a few days ago in one of my local bike shops. They were priced mostly well over $1000 US dollars.

    I just saw this, too. It's a Dahon with wood fenders. Who cares?

    I think it's a very attractive bike but definitely not for me.
    I plan on living forever... so far so good.

    The whole bike is stylish but I especially like the handlebars. Anybody know what they are? Soma Sparrow?
