Restoration project - 1970 Moulton MKIII
OK, this thread is not really about a folding bike, but it's a cousin to one, I'm sure.
I don't really know what I have gotten myself into, but I've got a restoration project ahead of me. I found this 1970 Moulton MKIII at a garage sale. I would call it a frame, but it's much more. Many of the original parts are still on the bike. It's missing the 349mm wheels, but it still has the original brakes, kickstand, rear rack, stem, handlebar, etc. The front and back suspension are still there and working. The original funky bottom bracket, cranks and chainring all look really good and turns smoothly.
This looks like a nice project for the Summer. I plan to rebuild the front suspension (very novel design, buried inside the steerer tube), strip and paint the bike, and get some wheels for it. Should be a fun project (I hope :eek:)!
Wish me luck, I'm going to need it!
