This appears to be an early 1990s-vintage DAHON folding bike, branded and resold by Bickerton. From 1982 through at least to 1987 DAHONs had a brace that ran diagonally up from the top tube hinge to support the head tube about half way up, as seen in this image: This image displays the bike in Bickerton (instead of DAHON) branding, which is very close to ...

This question has been answered a few years ago. Identify this old folding bike that I got from the tip - an early Dahon? It's a rebranded Dahon folder and quite unusual. I leave my previous answer below The history of Bickerton bikes is quite amusing-- you should look it up. They are quite interesting. The newer model you have here will probably be a ...

It's a folding bicycle. You can fold it down small(ish) so that it fits inside a car boot or inside a carry bag. At 300 quid in that condition I'd say it's worth it, but I don't know the brand.

If your bike has a distinctive feature, then please edit a clear and well lit photo into your question. Ideally one of the whole bike from the right hand side, and ...

Notice how in the video he removes all the spokes with an angle grinder and we never see them again. then he chops up the rim into four pieces, which has the effect of making it come apart a bit. On that basis, it would seem, to this non-fisher, that the spoke count and length is entirely immaterial. You say it is a 26 inch rim, it looks like it might be ...

John Abeni was an Australian frame builder in the 80's/90's. He built frames for Europa cycles in Sydney as well as under his own name. There were lots of bikes sold with Abeni decals that came in from overseas but a real Abeni was pantographed as described in a previous post. The lugs and dropouts on this frame look very much like they originate in the 1950'...
