Dawes Kingpin Folding Bike

Thanks in advance for any help!

The paint is in good condition, but the bike needs overhauled. I don't suspect it is worth much, but I would appreciate any help as to value. I don't know much about the bike, but hopefully the pictures will make-up for my lack of knowledge. I'm checking into value on behalf of a customer.

Vintage folding bicycles are tough to sell. There seems to be no market for them - anywhere! I let this BSA Twenty go for ten bucks but it did cost the buyer $85.00 for shipping and handling...



I have two Raleigh Folders sitting in The Old Shed and one Olmo. I should get ride of them and free up three storage hooks...

Thanks Randy! Your estimation is about what I thought. The bike is not mine--I was just trying to help another person. Your words only confirm what I already said to the owner. Thanks again!
