    Iíve been busy this afternoon...

    Stripped down the Moulton, removed wheels, callipers, derailleur, chain and front suspension. Stripped front hub and repacked it with grease.


    Gave the bike a good clean and made a start at putting it back together. Refitted the brakes and they now are working properly (Unlike when I bought the bike).



    I found it quite enjoyable to work on this bike and I’m please with the results so far.

    Yep, I get a charge out of working on my bikes as well. I'll pretty much gone through everything a couple of times except for changing a headset and of course Dahon stuff is pretty proprietary there but I want to change the headset on my MASI Speciale. Not because it needs it but because I want to figure out how to do it.

    Nice pics.

    Good looking bike. I see that you don't have cottered cranks. Someone must have upgraded the bottom bracket. Niiiice. The old Raleigh BB is a pain.

    Took it out for a ride earlier, only a short 2 miles. The brakes are much better but I need new ball bearings (and possibly cones) in the front hub.

    It was the Liverpool Ė Chester-Liverpool bike ride today and the route goes past our avenue so I rode up to the roundabout and had a chat with the marshal on duty... I then set off for home chasing and blasting past riders on the way back to Liverpool... Ok, Ok they where tired but it was still fun seeing their faces as I passed them on my moulton.
