I can't help you directly, but when I need to identify stuff from photos, I do a search using what key words I have, ie. "mini velo", then tag "images to bring up pages of images which I can work through pretty quickly. If an image matches it's usually possible to link back to a site.

From this page it looks like the company is Hoodbikes Mini-Velo a tu gusto : My Beautiful Parking
But it's also in Spanish, and that link to the company site is broke. A quick Google of that with mini velo didn't yield good results either. Mostly pinterest crap I can look at without a login.

Post the query in the Folding Bikes channel. That is where mini velo fans seem to congregate and where they garner most admiration and support. A separate mini velo channel would be good.

I don't recognize the head tube logo, but the frames look like typical bike polo minis, e.g. Sillgey Piccolos, or Big Shots.

Asia..
they love Mini Velos there .. and since they command Most of the Bike Manufacturing resources now,
because other companies have sub contracted out the work for So Long, to them, they are really good at it.

Order enough units and they will put Your Name On It & even design the Logo for you.
