    Motobecane Mirage

    I have a 1973 Motobecane Mirage. It is in pretty good condition. The paint could have seen better days but there is no rust or anything. It has all original components (from what I was told) and rides very well. I was just kind of curious what it is worth. I am trying to figure out whether I should restore it and ride it or try to sell it. I am sorry I don't currently have any pictures. I will try to get some up later tonight if it helps.

    Thanks.

    Whether you should restore it depends on what it's worth to you. Market value is probably around $100. A restoration would certainly cost more than $100. So... Does it need restoration in order to ride? Is there some sentimental reason for you to restore this particular bike that would make you ignore the expense?

    I sold a '71 Mirage last month for $150.

    If you weren't too far away, I'd definitely be interested at that price.
