Would you consider other types of folding bicycles. I have an Italian bicycle tht folds like the Twenty and has a stiff frame. Raleigh is very limited in bottom bracket parts and is costly

MISC:   1896 our diamnond bicycle posted by: charlie on 2/24/2006 at 2:47:07 AM
I picked up an antique 1896 Our Diamond, by C.W. Hackett with wood rims a month ago at an estate sale. I have had it on ebay but no takers. Today I purchased the snow skis that belonged with it, (I overlooked them at the sale) of course had to pay dearly for them. I was wondering if anyone knew what the skis are really worth. they fit the bike and are in great condition. Any info would be greatly appreciated and thanks, Charlie
