Unis Folding Bike - Silver

That's one big concrete block

Check out the seat tube decal: the Unis folding bike is officially the Yugo of folding bikes.

Made in Yugoslavia in 1989, the Unis folding bike has a folding steel frame, 20-inch steel wheels, and a bunch of generic steel parts, along with a Mikron front brake, Obiliceyo tires and a Sachs Torpedo Jet coaster-brake hub.

The aluminum fenders and chainguard complement the silver paint on the frame and fork, and the chrome wheels, cranks, handlebars, luggage rack, seatpost and seat frame are balanced by the black seat, grips, tires and pedals.

When I got this Unis folding bike, it still had the original protective plastic on the seat, and showed almost no signs of wear. As far as I know, it currently serves as a city commuter's back-and-forth-to-the-train-station bike (you can bring a folding bike on the Metro-North railroad without a bike pass), so if you go to Manhattan, you may see it chained to a parking meter. Or a Yugo.
