1963 Moulton de Luxe

First Year of Production Model

in Superb Original Condition

With Full Accessory Kit, 1963 Sturmey-Archer hub, etc

As a vintage bicycle collector I tend to focus on the era prior to WW1. But when I come across a bicycle as beautiful and original as this, even if it’s out of my designated area of interest, it’s very hard to resist buying it.

I have various 100-year-old cross-frames and it has been interesting comparing them to this ‘modern’ fifty-year-old example.

You can compare them yourself at the ‘Premier & Cross-frame Online Cycle Museum’ - http://www.oldbike.eu/premier/

Of course, as you can see from these photos, with its colourful style, this is also the ideal machine for cruising along Hove seafront.

This Moulton has been well cared-for throughout its life, being stored indoors most of the time.

Cosmetically it is unrestored and in excellent condition. Mechanically it is ready to ride. As with all my bikes, it will be serviced on sale.

The Moulton was announced to the press fifty years ago, and I expect there will be various celebrations of the model in 2013.

If you fancy a ‘museum piece’ that’s also practical for regular use (and a good investment too), could this be the classic machine for you?

From the CROSS FRAME STUDY GUIDE, 1962

I particularly liked the comment written under the above newspaper article in 1962, contributed to the Study Guide. 50 years later, the Moulton ‘ultra-modern cross-frame’ is indeed of interest to ‘future’ historians.
