after shopping around for a couple of days this seems like a good deal:

still can't pull the trigger at this price. Is Paratrooper really worth this much? (disclaimer: i've read all paratrooper links on this board)

Not-bad price on a Dahon Boardwalk SS.

Claimed as like-new, handbrake and coaster brake. $140.

A multitude of Moultons in the UK on eBay. Owner claims that he will be selling 16 of his 17 Moultons one at a time.

Search for item# 260188106859 on eBay, or seller solow101.

Potentially very interesting:

Prototype folding recumbent. Based off a brompton knockoff frame. I've no money to spend right now, so if anyone picks this one up PLEASE give us a detailed report and lots of pics.

Ebay link

Cheers

found these two gems on the vancouver CL website:

http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/bik/516185728.html

http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/bik/516209400.html

Both seems to be in great condition. Still, I do believe they are a little overpriced?

Looks like its a rebranded Raleigh 20. Its a good specimen based on what I read here. Sorry, I can't be of any help. I'm sure actual R20 owners will chime-in soon and they can tell you more.
