rog pony folding bike

Just picked up a rog pony? folding bike, my guess is from the 60's or 70's weinmann brakes, internally geared 3 speed, sturmey archer shifter. no other identifying marks I can find. I am wondering if there is any value in restoring it? and if anyone can tell me anything about it?

I've never heard of it, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Could you post a photo or two?

In general, old folding bikes are not valuable. Most of them are not very good either for riding or for folding. But there are exceptions, and the exceptions are often very desirable --at least to folding bike fans.

Speaking of folding bike fans, you'll find more of them in the Folding Bikes forum than here in C&V. You might want to post your photos there as well as here.
