    Mid-70s Motobecane Champion Team

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...678972742.html

    So I just about had a heart attack when I first saw this a week or so ago, I've always wanted one of the orange team motos. Unfortunately it's way too small for me, and when I went to take a look at it it's not in the best shape in the world. A lot of the campy stuff is still there, but the cranks and rear derailleur have been replaced, and I just had a hard time justifying spending the money when I couldnt' use it. Well, it's a week later and I still kind of want it, lol. I guess my question is if I took the time to restore it a bit would it be worth flipping it? I could probably get the guy down to 150 or less I'd imagine.

    I'd do it in a hot LA second. Also, looks a little bigger than 51cm...did you measure it?
