The bike I use the most.

1964 Series 1 Moulton - An early one so it's pop rivited!

Docked by a previous owner and speed sticker applied. And painted yellow :shock:

Nitto Moustache bars and Technomic deluxe stem

Modern carbon bar end brake levers (I like the juxtaposition!)
Sturmey Sprinter 5 speed rear hub (in a 28 hole 3 speed steel shell) twin stem mounted gear levers, 28 hole alloy rims, Unknown alloy front hub
Unknown cotterless alloy chainset
Shimano platform/spd pedals

Unbranded deep drop dual pivot brakes

unbranded micro adjust seat post (a nice shape, if that makes snese)

Schwalbe Kojak tyres, Schwalbe presta inner tubes, plastic valve hole adaptors schrader to presta

Moulton AM mudguards
Japanses brass bell

Engraved Nitto Moulton bottle cage (what decadence :D ) on seat post on zefal mounts
Topeak adjustable bottle cage on head tube with more zefal mounts

Ti Brooks B17 and brooks bar tape

Carradice Slim SQR rear bag = pick taken on the way back from buying a new sleeping bag so that's on top of the Carradice...

quick-ish (although i'm not), damn comfy and I love it....

Glad you posted this because I had intended to say something about Alex Moulton's passing this year...

Have recently bought a pop-riveted Series 1 Moulton and love the look of yours. Intrigued by the mudguards. Are they the Moulton guards for the 17" wheeled AM models?
