Moulton 60

New special edition Moulton F frame to commemorate their 60th anniversary.
Stainless steel on what looks like an evolution of the Mk3 Raleigh-licenced frame.
Lovely. But Limited edition sadly.

EDIT: Limited to 191 units, all already spoken for. Cost? 4,000 GPB (about $6,158 USD)

Hi LP:

I saw this at the Interbike show last week. The price was listed as over $10K in the US.

Hey Sesame. It's lovely, though that price is outrageous! (even if it's fillet brazed)

If I could afford to buy one, I wouldn't worry about making a buck!

I've seen this in the flesh when it was release at Bradford upon Avon this September.
The quality of workmanship is incredible - I would like one with drop bars please......
I believe that 191 are going to be made and 100 are pre-sold already.

The plan is that this is the forerunner to a new line in 'classic' Moultons harking back to the early days of the Moulton bike.

Moulton has added the 60 to their rarely-updated website.

Looks awesome! I like the hint of grin in pic 1, or is that the lighting?
