Got this message from a reader recently:

I acquired a very cool folding bike from the Rozelle Markets a few weeks ago. I was originally looking for a Raleigh folder in good nick to recondition, but this one was just too cool to ignore…I have searched through google and haven’t found any reference to this bike or the maker. It would be really appreciated if you could post images of it on your site to see if anybody knows anything about this brand and origins.

So post I will, with a nod of appreciation to Alan’s attention to detail in the photos – love your work.

Over to you.

  1. Its a beauty, first of all reminded me of a royal enfield but not with that oriental lettering. I looked up Du Juan (means cuckoo in Chinese) and found this: but there isn’t much more info… keep us updated though!

    Hey! I finally found someone else that has a cuckoo! I have a couple, both blue. I have spent many hours researching this bike, can’t find anything except ads from Asian gumtree type sites. It’s definitely Chinese.

    Thanks littlewheeler… Not much around on the net about this bike is there…
