The two Monarks you linked to I would guess are detatchable but it is possible the one you found is folding. These bikes often came in different configs, also some of them not folding or detatchable. I like the wide rack on the black and white picture.

Keep us updated.

I have been thinking about your thread the last few days. I had a 1954 ladies bike that developed a crack in the frame. I still have it, but since I was told all kinds of things that prevented me from having it welded, I borrowed a few components from it. The bike that were given these parts were stolen and I have regretted it ever since. If you have a bike you like and you don't mind the cost too much, just go ahead and have it welded. These repairs tend to hold for decades after and not fail, but there's no guarantee it will not. Some will not hold up to daily use again, but if it's a good job it will and most do.
