20 Elite (Rixe) folding bike [SOLD]

Mainly bought in April '16 for the seatpost, but it was to nice to be ripped apart, so I restored it completely. Took about 15 hours! The paint seemed to be once metallic orange. Sadly though the decals are missing by 50%... Every single aluminium part was polished till mirror finish. All original apart from the new tires+tubes and cable+housing. Sold to a friend - still riding proud in Hamburg

More Info:
The paintjob once was a bright-metallic-orange, but the weather changed it into this nice patina-brown; polishing didn't do much so I gave it up. But now I like the colour combination!
