My first folder: KHS Hollywood
I just picked up my first folding bike to get back into cycling. I picked up this little beauty for a steal off Craigslist, according to the vendor it costs over $400 MSRP when purchased. It's called the KHS Hollywood with 6-speed shimano and 20", but I have no additional information on it, like the year it was released. But from KHS, it seemed like a better deal than any sub $300 folding bikes I was looking at. I attempted to take it in for a tune-up, but I was told it was in great shape. Attached are some pictures of me riding it.
Took it for it's first test drive on Sunday, drove it all over the San Fernando Valley in Southern California. I like the fact it closes so this is forever staying in the trunk of my car. My only complaint is that EVERYONE is faster than me on this bike. Because of the small wheels, I need to pedal three times as much to keep up but then again, it is a FANTASTIC work out, so it balances itself in the end.
I want to replace the stock brake levers with some nice metal ones, as well as purchasing some other accessories like an LED light, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

PS: My girlfriend named it R2-D2 because of the pearl-like finish
