Folding Bike

Looks bad, lots of rust but basics all work: axles, bearings, three speed rear hub. Sand, paint, new shift and brake cables should make serviceable transportation.

Pick up in Gainesville FL or will deliver to Green Cove Springs my next trip over.

Re: Folding Bike

If you think it would be worth me driving up from Tampa I'd like to have it.

Hi Paul,

Probably wouldn't make sense unless you were coming this way already. This is not a high dollar bike but a small wheel design similar to this Folding bike except mine is rusty and will need a tuneup (probably a couple of new cables, adjust shift and brakes, etc). Probably cheaper in the long run to get one in better condition locally but you are welcome to this one if you want it.

Thanks
Skip

A rusty bike will still be there in the morning.

Like a beat up dinghy? Good thought. Maybe I'll take this one to the yard while I finish the refit.

Yep.

A traveler came thru recently with a Brompton. OOOooooooooo. But more than 2K. It was shiny new. That was about a month ago. Hope he still has it.

Re: Folding Bike

Thanks for the reply, I guess it would be a better opportunity for someone closer. I'll pass to someone else.

Re: Folding Bike

Hi Skipmac,
Is the bike still available?
We've got our boat at Holland Marine (Reynold's Park, Green Cove Springs) and would be interested for our 14 year old.
