In a couple of minutes, this bike with centre-folded frame and 20" wheels could have been collapsed into a small package that would fit in the luggage compartment of a car or even in hand baggage. In the early 1970s and 1980s these bikes were in fashion in the Soviet Union and often available only via acquaintances in the trade network.
