Looks like there are about a dozen KHS dealers within 50 miles of Seattle. Have you contacted any of them to see if they might have one?

Thought it was discontinued/no longer imported. Maybe I'm wrong.

I don't know the current status of any KHS models. But a dealer might still have the one you are looking for in stock.

There is a Seattle Craigslist ad that mistakenly describes a KDS folding bike.

KDS Folding Bike

Is this the right one?

Thanks for that, saw it a few days ago. I think it's a Cappucino but have asked (but haven't gotten a response).

it's a "cappucino" but, the frame is the same as f20. the differences will be in fork and components.

I thought the wheels on the Cappucino were 18" instead of 20"...

yes, the cappuccino has 18 x 1.5 wheels, but if you wanted to convert to 20" 406 wheels i think you can. i think the cappuccino is even more rare than the f20 in the states..

It does look super cool; I wish the seller would get back to me.

I have a KHS iPed Manhattan I am letting go of. Man, is that bike fun to ride. It is no speed demon, but it is very stable and it folds much faster than anything but a tikit.

Got it today! Just lubed/tightened/adjusted a few things and swapped out the stem and rode around the block, but so far it rides quite nicely I think.
