Creative Motion Cable Drive Bicycle

I found this Creative Motion CM 1000 cable drive folding bicycle recently. They apparently only made 60 of these and I'm trying to find out what it might be worth and if anyone has any interest for unusual bikes like this. The seatpost and handle bars slide down for a compact package. It's missing the rear fender but all else seems original. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

IMO, these are primarily a novelty item and hold little value beyond a conversation piece.

Never seen one till now
Only making 60 could account for that.

I love the looks of this bike. You might try selling (and shipping) on eBay or taking it to a bike show. Folders and other small wheeled bikes are still being designed without that boring diamond frame. Some catch on, others do not. You should post this in the folding bikes sub forum.

Take his offer; this may be the last time somebody will actually WANT this thing before some crucial component breaks and makes it worthless!

I'd be interested in selling the bike for $100.00. Let me know if you're interested.

I think you've answered your question; you need to make at least 7 more posts. Go over to "Advocacy & Safety", they always have threads that end up with multiple, silly posts. You should be up to 10 posts in less than an hour.
