I know squat about these...other than that Moulton is pretty cool.
Around what would be a value range on this? How do you size yourself to one? Just use a longer stem and more post? Is this a decent model?

If you know a bit about the Moultons, this is a pretty good opportunity. This bike was my wife's daily rider until about a year ago when she hurt her leg. About the same time, the rear tube went flat and the bike's been sitting since then. I originally bought the bike with the intent to fully restore it. It needs just the tube repair to be rideable, but lots more to be nice.
I had the rear rack completely redone by a welding shop, but never repainted it - the idea was to repaint the whole bike at once. Anyway, there's surface rust on the frame, but nothing that affects the integrity. The 4-speed Sturmey Archer rear hub and shifter are 100% functional and nicely geared for riding in Philly. The Brooks saddle is usable, but pretty trashed. The pearlized adjustment tabs are shot (though functional) and the original grips are pretty much past their useful life. Tires should be replaced and have to be ordered online because the size is unique to Moulton.
Feel free to email questions. Promise to take care of it and I'll entertain reasonable offers, but nothing ridiculous.
