Rough condition. I see very little value personally. Here is some more info: (link is broken) The info came from Re**it and it refuses to allow the URL to copy properly for some reason. Hmmmm. Never saw that before.

But the consensus is it is probably somewhere around 1980 vintage despite the cottered cranks which would ordinarily point to it being older.

The thing is it would take a lot of elbow grease and likely some consumables in order to get it running again. And at that point you will likely be upside down as it pertains to value.

There are many competing brands both from back then, earlier and current. Many much nicer.

Interesting that there is still an Apollo folding bike made that is a modern take on the bike you own. There's even electric models apparently.

Donation fodder where I live. Not worth the time and trouble to sell. Folders get little interest generally, and this one is in poor condition. The consumables to refurbish the bike would exceed the value of the finished project.

In the consumer branded vintage folder market, the Raleigh Twenty had some value, the other brands, not so much.

No location in the OP's provide, so perhaps his market is better.

My local bike coop has a couple similar folders from the 1960s/1970s that have been sitting for a few years. Both in rough shape. Nearly no interest. Sold one for a bargain price of $20 and the buyer re-donated it untouched after a year of looking at it. Many of these need more in parts than they are worth. I see a number of them in use at large outdoor swap meets. Most are in ride able condition.

Apollo (Greek God) has been used by at least 4 bike companies. A 2000+ year old name difficult to trademark or copy-ritet so it keeps getting recycled. I have a Made in England Apollo 3 speed 'racer' and an Apollo mountain bike. There was a flashy Apollo muscle bike. And I've seen other folders like yours.
