The Moulton AM-2 and AM-7 were first produced in 1983. This is an original AM-7 made in that first year of production. Serial number is 350012, which means it’s the 12th bike made in the 50th week of 1983.
We are the second owner. Once purchased, the bike was cleaned and tuned-up by a mechanic familiar with Moultons. Though completely road-worthy, this bike was set up simply as a display and conversation piece for the bike shop, and never ridden.
The bike is all original except for a new chain, quill stem, saddle, and a second chainring added to the crankset, finger shifted. It’s assumed that it was ordered with flat handlebars by the original owner since the AM-7 usually was equipped with drop-bars. The flat bars are the make and model that came with the AM-2; narrow GB alloy.
