Used BD-1 (Birdy) for sale in Texas. Price seems fair and the shipping sounds reasonable unlike other postings.
Should have an interesting story in how the owner managed to bring a BD-1 over stateside.

Twenty year old Brompton going for $100 but with a broken shifter. Would be a nice project. The price is good.

Here's an odd one by Katakura. Looks more collectible than useful. Never seen one before.

itís a fine bike if you donít mind 16Ē wheels. Just know that Dahon stopped making Curve D3 in 2013 so spare parts may be an issue.

Reposted on CL.

Xootr Swift like new, very low miles. The Xootr was not my "go to" bike on our bike trips, as it takes up more than half of a small car's trunk when folded, leaving little room for a second bike.

Change folding MTB frame. Made in Taiwan. Pristine condition with ultra-low miles on it (about 65 miles all told) and very gently ridden. I built it up for my wife for riding on the Perkiomen trail outside Philadelphia, which has some very light gravel/sandy sections. Asking $500 (sells for $880).

Totally tricked out Rohloff Birdy on Craigslist for $5,000 in Los Angeles. A bit much for my wallet (I'm not saying its not worth it, just a bit much for me).

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/la...499837930.html

He's selling it on Ebay also for $5,700, so it is not a scam.

Montague Folding Bike - Single Speed - $200

This was my daily commuter bike. I only used this to bike to the train station and parked it there. I no longer take the train:

Basic Black like the first Swift Folder or British Racing Green. Or better still, British Racing Green top tube and Gloss black fork and rear triangle.

you canít go wrong with black, but I like the green idea. Or, maybe black with red hubs are trim.
