I just picked up this gem earlier today. It's an old (somewhere in the 70's) Motobecane Mixte. I'm thinking of making it a Rasta themed fixed gear. Black frame with red green and yellow components.

Seventies Motobecane mixte screams French threads. It'll be a fun project tracking down parts. Use what you can.
Rasta basket is essential.

I think it's late 70's. All the parts are Japanese, so it might not be that bad, unless they made french threaded parts in Japan. The bottom bracket looks like a standard euro bb but I never dealt with French stuff though
