mission impossible to search for dahon literature

I am searching so a archive for dahon whether it is dimensions or even an old catalog, I have a stowaway and a California and have been looking for parts but the only thing I have foind online is to buy a clunker dahon. But I am trying to figure out how to change some parts out and make the bicycle similair to My 1964 Moulton Deluxe but a cheap dahon. I know Dahon's are cheap and this is an older one but I wanted to see if it could get new life.

Side note,
Its not my Moulton I wish it was http://sheldonbrown.com/org/moulton-deluxe.html

Well I meant road style bike with little wheels similair but not equal. But do you know of any archives for dahon then if you know so much about moultons I am not very educated in folding or vintage bicycles
