Dahon bike? What is it?

Hello,

First time posting, so hopefully I'm not breaking any rules. I don't know much about bikes, but this Dahon was given to me years ago and just sat in my shed covered up. I need to clear the shed a bit and was considering getting rid of the bike. It looks old, but not sure what its worth. I didn't want to off-load it cheaply if it was worth something. Let me know what you think, any info is helpful.

Thanks!

Itís a fairly low end folding bike, not a lot of value, limited market. Easier to sell if youíre in a city. If it were me Iíd try for $100 but probably let it go for less.

As said pretty low end and single speed with a coaster but looks to be in really good condition. If the folding mech is solid and works nice I would say $120 or so in bigger market in a smaller or lesser market you would have a hard time selling it.

Damon's were mostly low end, but very popular, even to this day.
This is because they offered folding bikes that worked well enough, at a very reasonable price.
