A Remarkable Bicycle for a Remarkable Man 9th April 2010
Dr. Alex Moulton was born on April 9th 1920, and, ninety years later, The Moulton Bicycle Company has created a special bicycle to mark the occasion. This bicycle, the first result of ‘Project Sixty’, was presented by the company to Alex Moulton on his ninetieth birthday, in celebration of his astonishing contribution to the bicycle industry.
This bicycle is an all-stainless steel interpretation of the enduringly popular ‘F’-frame design that was pioneered by Alex Moulton in 1962. The bicycle shares some of its features with the latest Moulton Speed, including the use of Reynolds 953 stainless steel and detailed improvements to the legendary Moulton leading link front suspension.
Built by The Moulton Bicycle Company’s highly-skilled silver brazers, this is the first ‘F’-frame bicycle to be created at the Bradford on Avon factory for over thirty years. It is equipped with a two-speed ‘Duomatic’ hub gear, original Moulton 17″ wheels and a rather special Brooks leather saddle.
