Moulton AM Esprit

 

This (separable) AM Esprit was bought from Paul Villiers of Villiers Velo when the model was launched in 2007. In 2013 it was resprayed in royal blue and entirely rebuilt to a very special specification, using colour-co-ordinated components (matching blue) where possible. It's now a unique model, and was much admired at Bradford on Avon in 2013.

 

Specification (all items new unless otherwise declared):

  •  Dura Ace chain set and derailleurs, 2 x 9 set-up.
  • Dura Ace down tube changers mounted on Moulton-milled stainless steel handlebar adapters (the adapters alone were available from Moulton at the time of purchase for around. £250 the pair!).
  • Bullhorn handlebars with blue Brooks leather handlebar tape andbar end brake levers (carbon: SRAM TT); Shimano brakes (Dura Ace, I think).
  • Kamoya Sliky R rear suspension (http://kamoya.info/7_25.html).
  • Thorn stem, black bar raiser, bullhorn bars (Profile Design Airwing, I think).
  • BLB track pedals in blue (http://bricklanebikes.co.uk/posts/398) with toeclips, blue leather straps.
  • Schwalbe Stelvio tyres, original wheels (black rims, Australian, not sure of make) and front and rear (black) mudguards).
  • Mike Burrows carbon aero seatpost.
  • Brooks B17 saddle and Challenge toolbar, both in Royal Blue.
  • Various extras including blue bottle cage, mirror, Minoura space bar extension for lights (lights not included) and sweet-tone, brass bell), Ergotec adjustable kickstand etc.
The Esprit was built by Moultons in Bradford on Avon for only a very short period so examples are rare. This one is unique. The handling is wonderful: sprightly yet comfortable and (although this is heresy...) it provides in my opinion an even better ride than the fabulously expensive Double Pylon at a fraction of the price.

The bike can be viewed in Putney, London SW15 but I can ship worldwide at buyer's cost (I have put a notional figure on the shipping outside the UK but will do it at cost by the buyer's chosen carrier).

Questions and answers about this item

Q: Hi This isn't meant to be rude in any way, but apart from being blue and having blue parts, is there anything else about this bike which makes it unique? It just seems priced a bit high when compared to a Speed or AM... Continue reading
A: Fair question, to which the answer is that almost everything in the details of the listing show it to be unique: the all-Dura Ace equipment (including the Moulton-built adapters to fit the gear change levers to the bars,... Continue reading
