    I'd guess it's a Durley Pedersen. joe-pederson-bike-9-2015A-1200px.jpg
    This green one is circa 1903, a little more original than the ones above, note the interesting gearbox: Dursley-1903-2512-1.jpg Dursley-1903-2512-4-300x600.jpg

    By the way, searching "bizarre folding bike" in the ol gugulator really brings some interesting designs! one-bike.jpg

    Dursley Pederson design first used around 1890 or so. A truly handbuilt bike.

    There may still be a couple of builders doing custom versions using the original design concept.
    I have a couple of “Ortho” model faux Pedersen style bikes by Virtue Bikes. The first one is a rat rod project from an Ortho frame. The second is mostly stock out of the box.
