    Sounds to me like you have just described the earlier Montague model, Bi-frame. 26" wheels, canti brakes, etc. Not sure how well it will fin in a case though.

    I wouldn't replace the hinge pin with an M8 screw or bolt, it really needs to be a piece of plain bar, no screw threads as they will fail too quickly and be a source of further slack.
    Without seeing...

    Yes, my idea was drill the pin and effectively destroy it and replace it with a new one. You might find that when the pin is finally removed from the frame that the holes are so big due to wear that...

    If the main hinge pin is free enough to move by 5mm and can rotate freely then it seems unlikley what welding something onto it to pull it out will work. Is there even enough space around the recess...

    If its anything like the axle on the Dahon Jack then the end of the axle is drilled and tapped, probably an M5 screw thread. With the grub screw removed (as you have already done) screw a bolt into...

    When I was a kid the local window cleaner used to cycle with his ladders on his shoulder by putting his arm through one of rungs. I suspect modern day heath and safety would put a stop that sort of...

    Building a two cross pattern wheel is exactly the same process as a three cross pattern with the exception that you only cross each spoke twice rather than 3 times. The Wheel Pro book on wheel...

    Look out for a second hand Dahon Jack, Dahon Espresso or a Montague Bi-Frame (often sold as a Rudge Bi-Frame in the UK). They will be much better than the bike you linked to.

    It would be a lot of work, I wouldn't repaint it unless the old paint was damaged and the frame was rusting. Bags do come up on ebay but make sure you get one the right size, to fit a 20" wheel bike...

    The dual drive hub will give you 24 or 27 speeds, 3 in the hub and either an 8 or 9 speed cassette. You would need to build a new wheel and make sure the rear dropout spacing is wide enough to the...

    Should have mentioned that if you do decide to use Big Apples, check that there will be enough clearance between the tyre and the frame/callipers.

    It is one of the 20" Dahon models, the Getaway I think, and should be a good bike as they are well respected. Looks nice, you did well.
