Most cycle purchases are heavily influenced by fashion: many mountain bikes are bought for their rugged looks and never venture off-road, and many racer-style road bikes are never ridden either quickly, or competitively. Older people tend not to slavishly follow trends and tend to look for objects that will provide solutions to their problems, caring little for what others think. They also tend to have more disposable income and can afford low-volume (and therefore expensive) cycles. I would say that most Moultons are not 'trophy bikes'; they are merely outward signs of independent thinking.
