How'd I do? 1970's Motobecane 10 speed - 40 bucks
Just picked up a Motobecane 10 speed off CL. seller said it was "from the 1970s." Some rust on frame and spokes, but rims are in nice shape. shifts through all the gears, though some scraping the chain on the front derailleur. Says made in France, has Suntour shifters and some Weinneman (sp?) components as well. Rear tube and tire are shot, front seems ok. Cool paint job, which would be great to restore and touch up if possible.
Any thoughts? Was 40 bucks a decent deal for a fixer-upper?
