:pI am about to strip a 1983 AM7 for respray and rebuild. Anything I should particularly look out for or be wary of? Will be careful to label and store the front sus bits, and to block up holes against overspray. Thanks. :-\

Wish I could help you, but I'm not at all familiar with your model.<br />I'd suggest you find the Moulton Club website, U.K. based, then look up the workshop articles there. <br /><br />Whilst you have the frame stripped, and before the repaint, it might be worthwhile to consider what braze-on items could be added for future convenience, such as bidon cages (if not already present), cable guides (in case different rear hubs/gears come along), vee-brake mounts, etc.<br /> <br />Good Luck.

Thanks for the interest. I have Tony Hadland's book "The Space Frame Moulton" (excellent). It contains exploded drawings - handy for reassembling the forks. :)

You're welcome. If the paint job's good, perhaps you could recommend the paint shop, in case other cyclists may want to use it. Thanks.
