Not sure how old it is really. My dad bought it used when I was 7 or 8. That was around 1979. It looked just as old then as it does now.
It's very dirty from sitting in a basement, but I think it's very well preserved for how old it is.
Not sure what model it is either, but it has suspension front and rear. I think it's all original except for the tires.
It's a novelty for sure, but it's great to take on casual rides or for a quick trip to the grocery.
Front suspension between the fork and headtube.
Rear suspension is a block of rubber.
An interesting side note, Mr. Moulton designed the suspension for the original
Austin Mini. It uses rubber blocks too.
According to my father, Moulton sold the rights to an American manfacturer in the late 60's or 70's.
This one is the real deal though.
The serial number starts with 65. Maybe the year???
Actually the whole thing is 65020003. Maybe the 3rd one from Feb 1965???
Who know? I don't know if anyone else appreciates this as much as I do. I think
It's the coolest commuter bike I've ever seen.
Oh yeah, and despite how it looks, it does not fold.
If anyone knows anything about old Moultons, I'd love to know more about their history.
Thanks for looking.
