What it is: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/70000309

airportable and air-droppable folding motorcycle 1942 Excelsior Villiers Welbike

British WW2 small folding motorcycle designed to be dropped by parachute in a standard airdrop container, powered by a Villiers 98cc single cylinder 2-stroke engine.

Maybe again one to buy?, but checked ebay and only frame and other small parts showing.

This website below had the few that did go up for sale:
