Dahon Helios XX #096 of 300 Made

A walk through my garage confirmed I have accumulated more cool bikes than I can use .. so, up for sale is the lightest production folder Dahon ever made. The Helios XX 20th Anniversary bike came in at under 17lbs with a 9 speed drivetrain.. high quality components brought the weight down significantly from the already light Helios model... this is serial number 096 of 300 made .. Genuine Rolf wheels, Nokon cables, SRAM X0 9 speed drivetrain/shifters, Carbon seatpost and handlebar, all contributing to the sub-17lbs weight .. mine is an unmolested one that I have had on display for years.. still highly functional and extremely portable as the handlebar folds down between the two halves giving a width of roughly 11" folded.. the light weight is immediately apparent when you go to move it in it's folded state.. a collectable featherweight with performance features... $1500 takes it.

Other than this board, I haven't put much effort into selling it.. I get a few positive responses, but the bike remains on display and for sale ..

Hi Bruce. I know this is half a year after your last post, but is it still for sale?

Dahon Helios XX #096 of 300 Made

Dear Mr. Bruce Metras,

My boss would like to buy your Dahon Helios xx bike. Is it still available? We are in Hong Kong. Is it possible for you to arrange delivery to HK? If not, I can find a logistics company to arrange it myself. What is the payment method? How much in total to include delivery to HK.

Please could you reply to me by email '[email protected]'. I also left a message on your facebook as well.

Your kind help is much appreciated.

Best regards,
Ice Cheung
