Dawes Jack and Kingpin 20 inch Folding

Hi, I am trying to discover the front wheel dropout spacing on these Dawes folding bikes. The purpose being that I plan to convert with an ebike conversion kit. Please can anybody advise me before making a purchase.

I'd be surprised if they were not 74/130mm OLD. You know, the usual for bi-fold, rim brake folders.

Various companies who have owned the Dawes IP have produced several models of folding bike they've branded as Kingpin over the last 50 years. Can you give us a hint of the year model?

Well I bit the bullet and ordered the bike and it arrived today. Well Ron was only half right with his idea that the rear dropout was 130mm. But the front Ron is not 74mm but 100mm. So it will fit the electric hub motor. Thanks to all.
