Cook three-bar cruiser and my '93 Toyota pickup, dents galore but very little rust for Iowa. The 22r-e and 5 speed make for a fun-to-drive lil truck.

Here is my 'truck', with three bikes in the back. They are all Romet Jubilat 2 folders, which I had just bought from a guy who had collected them from local scrapyards. One has since been prepared to sell in the Spring, one is my farm bike, and the other my occasional hack bike - when I have not borrowed bits off of it to fit to my other bikes. The truck is a 1 litre Toyota Yaris, and gets to haul our stuff everywhere, including my original Jubilat off-road conversion and my 20" wheeled Romet Wigry folder.

Where are you that you got Polish (?) made 24" folders? I can say I'd never seen them before.

Well it is quite easy, when you live in rural eastern Poland ;)

I have 4 Romet Jubilat folders with 24" wheels, a classic Romet Wigry folder with 20" wheels, and a Romet Turing step-thru frame - finding them is like picking fruit off a tree as although out of production for about 20 years many are still in use - the Wigry I found by a dumpster, and Turing was decaying in one of my barns - and the three Jubilats in the car were a normal bulk buy.

Here is one of the three, a rare Zenit model with 3-speed derailleur instead of the standard coaster brake. It is now my farm bike, and you can tell because it is leaning against my cottage on my farm ;)

It'd be cool to see the drive side, I'm curious about the 3 speed setup
It is not a big deal, a standard 5-gear freewheel derailleur set up with no gears on the smallest and largest positions - you can see the hub on my profile picture. I think I would have to replace the H and L screws to use a freewheel with more gears as the H seems wound out a long way already. The bike is in pieces at the moment for a total rebuild, and at some stage I will be trying another built wheel I have hanging around with an actual 5-speed or 6-speed freewheel, I cannot remember which.

Anyone familiar with Romets will recognise the 3-piece crank normally found on their mid-range machines rather than the normal 2-piece. The BB is toast, so it is going to get a square drive crank, either cartridge or caged bearing, not sure which yet.
