Thanks, it really is fun. I mainly bought it because I wanted something that could fit easily fold up and fit in the back of the van when we go to the cottage etc. Also the fenders and low centre of gravity make it a good rider when the streets are snowy. There is a whole subculture devoted to doing extreme modifications on these bikes, but I'm planning on keeping this one pretty much stock, that way I can lock it up downtown and go for lunch without worrying about it.
Raleigh 20 non folding needs restoring. Started tonight tearing it up. Bent steer fork, odd ball 20 inch wheels. Man them Brits sure can build a bike. For now Im ditching the fork and installing a BMX fork, and BMX heavy duty wheels. The wheels have like 72 spokes, and going with the single speed rear cog. I have the S/A 3 speed, might build a new rear rim for it in the future.
