When the bike folds, the bottom half of the chain droops a lot. Several ways to deal with this, but...I'm thinking I'd mount an ENO "Dos" to the suspension pivot. Run one chain (a half-link style) from a big single front chainring to the ENO joint, and then a second conventional chain runs to the rear gear-cluster and derailleur.

DAMN, air-shocks are expensive!!

That's one reason I never built the first trike I started designing, because it requires those to work, being based heavily on the Autospeed trikes.DAMN, air-shocks are expensive!!
