I've wanted a Moulton ever since I got back into bikes 10 years ago with some yard sale Dahon folders.
I finally got one last night. I believe it is a 1965. It has full front and rear suspension and a 4 speed Sturmey Archer.

Thanks go out to @josh_from_ga for bringing this back for me with the other stuff that he bought.

Here is a great video on the design progression of the Moulton. There is even a 1930s recumbent frame and a 1950s riveted Duralium monocoque frame design in there.

Actually this one doesn't fold. It was simply a full suspension mini velo. They did make a Stowaway breakaway version though.

What size tires does this have? They look like 16".

The folder I'm getting from Josh has 20" wheels, but looks small in pics.
The Moulton has 16" wheels.
