Designed by Alex Moulton, with a seperable frame IIRC.

I wish someone would offer me one love them love the yellow one is just so cool did it all so in green in good condition worth some where about 700 to 800 pounds moultons are just so good bit like Bromptons a bit quirky but fantastic design and always sell very good secondhand
 
The Moulton design was manufactured by Pashley as the APB, who then badged them for various companies

The frame was steel and heavier than any of the Moultn frames, but nevertheless an interesting and smooth ride for a small wheel bike. In this at least the Moulton pedigree shows.

Some are "seperable" rather than folding with bolt at the centre of the frame, dividing into two halves

I had one for many years, and if you do buy check the suspension is not sticking at the front as this is not something that many LBS will deal with.

The other thing is to ride it. The "space frame" means that the central frame is wide, which if you cycle "knock kneed" can be an issue

well quick update the seller let it go to a n other and couldnt understand the level of interest he had considering it wasnt advertised , in the end he let it go for £65 !!

i am gutted as it looked a worthwhile addition to the stable
