Ladies and gentlemen,

With all due respect, may I suggest that relatively few Moulton small-wheel bikes are appropriate for this forum, and that they have their own web site, etc. The common-garden variety Moulton is comparable to the UO-8 of its age in its components and craftsmanship. I know the question was asked in all sincerity, but I sure would hate for us to get long into this thread. I'll accept slings, arrows, and flames off-line (and 'fess up to be an ex-Moulton owner).

Well that's a really tough question. There are classic models that are worth maybe $150 and others like the Speed that was talked about on the list a few months back that went for $6000(?) I think. Sir Alex's bikes are brilliant in design and construction and have quite a few admirers on the list and off. I'd say the thing to do is to find out the model and condition and then search Ebay and the web for what that model's selling for today. I don't think there is a buyers guide for Moultons (Lou?). Also check the list archives since this topic has been discussed in the past. good luck, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Rode his non-classic small wheel bike to work today in Santa Barbara, calif.
