I still cannot find any info on these two folding bikes. The only difference between the two is the seat post length. The man's has a 16" seat post and the lady's is only 9".
I finished restoring/modifying one of the two and it is a very smooth running bike. Will be working on the second one.
I serviced all the bearings including the Shamano CB-E110 hub. A cotter pin press was used to service the bottom bracket and it was very easy to push them out and back in.
I took off the rear brake. The coaster plus the front is good enough. I love coaster brakes and this Shamno unit is very nice.
I replaced the handlebar with a dropbar so I get more reach. Also put on a pair of aero levers but only the front one is connected.
I replaced the old tires with some Kenda Kwest 20x1.5 and they are really nice.
Here is a finished pic.
Eventually I will be replacing the rims/wheels with some alloy ones.
