New (to me) Moulton AM GT!

I posted a thread previously re: which Moulton TSR which I know will be more useful and practical, but in my heart, I was secretly lusting for the Stainless models. Well, a used 1991 came up, and I bidded on it and won! I will take better pictures when I am back, but I am so excited I absolutely had to share it with the rest of you.

When in doubt, always go with your heart .. beautiful bike!! stock up on 369 tires and tubes ... not always the easiest to find when you need them.. also, make sure and check the lower pivot bolt for tightness .. which country did you purchase it?

As promised, a slightly better pic. By the time I got out, the sun was mostly gone. I took the bike for a brief spin. It is certainly very different from a full-sized bike. DUH! But it is a good different. The full suspension is nice. :-)

The parts are I think mostly original - Suntour CPX crankset, Shimano 600, a really heavy seatpost, and very loud Hugi rear hub.

Whilst it is not a tank, I am already planning for some upgrades - for starters, the brakes, post and the saddle would probably be quick wins.

I love it! :-)
