...on a clever 'demount bracket' so the whole lever mount could be unscrewed easily and temporarily attached to the rear of the bike (I think) when the bike was split. There was also a less-effective coupling for the rear brake cable on the demount bracket too, although I suspect most owners changed this to the barrel couplers when they became available. What do you do with your gear levers when you split the bike, Mick?
Incidentally in these days of common Moulton suspicion I'd like to chip in with what a brilliant bit of engineering the split in the spaceframe is. Not only is the split almost universally trouble-free* and maintenance-free too, especially if you don't use it much, but the execution of the split and particularly the re-join is fantastic. Hook the bottom joint together and let gravity do the rest, then you just have to remember to put the kingpin back in and tighten it. We have an S&S-coupled tandem too, and trying to join and separate that with one person is not quite impossible but definitely not easy. The brilliance of the joint almost justifies the over-complication of the spaceframe.
*no doubt there are outlier examples of problems on individual bikes but joint problems are just not an issue that ever comes up when two or three Moultoneers are gathered together in one place. Although I would like to see both halves of the lower tie supported when the frame is separated.
