...AND a thudbuster seat.... this looks pretty good. :)

Not sure if this is a "best buy" or not.

It's expensive, but a bit rare to see one of these pop up for sale.

Phaser Folding recumbent from HPM. It's a cousin of the Swift. $2000

I do google searches for particular keywords on the Craigslist bike listings, just to see.... if I had the money, I'd be tempted to get it for myself.

Too good to be true? Birdy + Case + Extras for $450, NYC area
Too good to be true? Birdy in NYC + Case + Extras = $450

"Upgraded with several trick components: WTB saddle, Cooke Brothers crank, MKS quick release pedals, Ritchey stem. "

Includes a travel case for air transport, looks like a Samsonite Oyster or one of the similar knock-offs. In Brooklyn.

The price looks great, assuming there's no hidden problems. If anyone grabs this, give a heads-up in this thread so that we know if this thread is serving any purpose. :)

It definitely serves a purpose, in that it alerts me to unusual folders that are not yet on my list, I am now storing any pics on Flickr (running out of space on my 'puter!)
So that when they expire, pics will still be available, I will also link them off my A-Z, gradually I'll convert my PDFs to Flickr too. So please, don't be shy, if you find anything you think is not already included let us know, this way they will be stored to help people in the future to determine the way to restore their future classic folders! Text files, manuals, brochures, adverts anything........
Have you got any of the above? Share it & preserve it, thank you Chaps & Chappesses, here endeth the lecture, & ye who rideth those crazy folders will prevail, (Book of Strida, Chapter5!)

P.S. To find my latest offering on Flickr please do a search for vouwfiets (as the Dutch for folding bike brings up a less boggling array of results) I will be adding lots more whenever I have an upload-friendly connection.

FAKE Giant Halfway on E-Bay-UK.

jur 06-28-07 12:59 AM

Instead of a fake, it could be one of the Chinese models. They have them in several versions, I certainly have seen one with non-cantilever forks in a Giant shop in Taipei.

JUR: I'm sorry. Giant CHINA sell those bikes. You were correct.

Raleigh Twenty
There is a Twenty on EBay, located on Long Island NY.

The person is trying to get muscle bike collectors interested. Little do they know, huh?
