Stuart brought over his 1966 OLMO for a new rear dropout. This one needed a Campagnolo long series dropout.The set I had in my stash didn’t have mudguard eyes so I carved the one off the broken dropout and brazed it to the new one

Paul at Lygon Cycles http://www.lygoncycles.com.au/ sent me this Moulton in need of a new tip on its suspension fork. The old one had rusted out and parted ways with the fork. I cut the old section off and turned up a plug style end for the fork. I brazed that in place and then put the original stainless steel dropout back in to the plug. Good as new and ready for another lifetime. Sorry there aren’t more pictures of this project
