I nearly crapped my pants when we got this box of parts into our shop today.

This lot of NOS Moots Mountaineer Accessories have been sitting in a gentleman's storage unit for the past 25 plus years. This simply reinforces the fact that what is "crap" to one man is truly a "treasure" to another. The devil is in the details and this is no exception.

Moots Road Handles (4 different sets)

Moots Portage Pads (2 different sets)

Moots Chain Backstops (3 sets)

All of these Moots Mountaineer Accessories are in their original bag with the paperwork and original price tags still on them. We even have old catalogs and pamphlets to boot.

Anyone ever see anything like this before?

Some of these parts will be for sale on our site others will end up in our museum.

PS Just wait until we show you what was in the second box of stuff he brought in!

We love this stuff!

Best of Rides,

Nick

What do you mean? What you see is what we have.

"Gentleman's storage"?

Sound like a cricketers box!

Sweet; I'll keep an eye out for the auction. I have a brown one; a black one would be nice.
