LOL - until 1 minute 10, I wondered what the hell you were on about.

Some pretty weird choreography there.

That looks like a Moulton New Series in stainless. only about 4,000. A bargain......

yeah, I guess I should have said to keep watching, I guess he can afford one of the stainless

After reading your posts on your TSR30, I want one of these so bad, Thanks for putting up the info

I have emailed Pashley several times but no response yet, guess I will call the Northridge dealer next week


There is a Moulton on Ebay but it's for local pickup in UK only or I would bid

Been trying to figure out how to get one all week, so I have decided to clear out some of my stable to justify the cost of a 30 or a moulton, damn !!!! here I go again

you sure did score on your 30

I'd put the phrase 'Moulton + pashley + TSR' a few times into ebay.co.uk and drawn a complete blank, then one day, there she was - freshly up and asking for the first 1000. I just emailed him instantly and said if you have a receipt for it and it is as you say, I'll pay you 1000 in cash within three days - notes in the hand. He lived 300 miles away, but hell, it was worth the drive, even at our diesel price of 5 a gallon.

LOL - you could always buy it and stick a bit of 'Bike Porn' up on your wall, just to fan the flames of your desires.

LOL




As a corrective though - while the bike is really nice, if one judged biles in the smiles per $ or smiles per , it would probably come out way below the DT mini or other more budget bikes. Maybe that's the way we should all start thinking to help cure us of spending fortunes on esoteric machines that while nice and while effective in some ways are not actually terribly good value. It is easy to fan the flames of desire so that we spend tonnes of hard earned money on bikes we didn't need. On the other hand, there are no pockets in shrouds are there, so we might as well unload all the cash we can and buy things that give us good experiences.
