Vintage Marilu Folding Bike clamp/pin needed

I lost the clamp that holds my bike together when in use. I'm not even sure that it's called a clamp. Anyone have an extra, or know something that can be used as a substitute? I'm not able to post a photo, because I'm new to the forum. It's the piece that has a large wing nut on it, that allows you to fold and unfold the bike.

Welcome. Someone will Google what that piece looks like while you accumulate ten posts so you can post a pic of your bike. We'll figure this out.


This looks like a generic Italian folder that's been sold under dozens of brand names. Without closer examination that is my guess. I think you'd be safe finding the same part for a Chiorda or an Amica or any of those brands. Probably.
