Subject: [CR]Vittoria Margherita gear and Moulton Stowaway

There is what appears to be a NOS Vittoria Margherita gear for sale on ebay right now with just over a day left. These generally go for in excess of 200 euros when they are available in Italy, so this may be a true opportunity for somebody looking for just such a device. I can't tell what the reserve is, but with the bidding stalled at $100 right now, it could turn out to be a deal.


There is also a Moulton Stowaway for sale. The woman selling the bike is doing so on behalf of her church and knows nothing about the bike. As the frame is marked stowaway, it should be the model that can be broken down into two main parts. I have asked her to see if she can determine if it is the one or two speed model but her mechanical expertise is not that great. She is however quite willing to supply any information or photos that are requested. The tires will undoubtedly need to be changed but for the rest the bike appears to be rideable.
