Hi all!

This is a functional folding bike with front and rear suspension. It's a replica of an existing model called "Birdy" from the German company Riese & Müller. Link for the real bike

The Lego model features

-full suspension

-chain drive with tensioner

-kickstand

-height adjustable seat

-carrier that also folds along with the bike

-realistic folding and unfolding. The folding is modelled as precisely as I could do with Lego pieces.

Wow, this is really an amazing model, completely off the beaten track. I like how realistic everything is done. The great side-by-side picture with the original shows this very well.

Looks like you really pulled the foldability off, not an easy feat. :thumbup:

Thank you for the comment!

Actually someone already made a Brompton, though I couldn't find much info about it. I only found it after someone made a comment on my Birdy model about it:

Maybe these are the two working Lego folding bikes ever posted publicly.
