Here are some pictures recently sent to me. It is a 60cm. custom ‘dave moulton’ built in January 1983, with original paint and chrome; which means it was not only built by me, but I painted it also.
It was finished with a Candy Apple Red over a White base coat. I found this was the best way to get a true brilliant red that won’t fade to orange as most red paint does. The proof is evident, the red still as bright as ever after 26 years.
The frame was built in the Masi shop in San Marcos, just North of San Diego, in Southern California. I did not move into my own shop until around July 1983. This was one of ten custom frames built that January; a productive month.
My thanks to owner Mike Carney who has owned the bike from new, and like most owners of these rare custom frames, says he will never part with it.
The rear brake bridge re-enforcers (Above.) are hand cut from a piece of tube. The barrel shaped center boss was one that was made in a machine shop in England. I brought a number of these with me when I moved to the US in 1979.
