    need help dating my motobecane mirage

    i bought my motobecane mirage in febuary. I am compleatly in love with it, its light, fast and can take a beating. It has moto crank arms and 1020 tubing. It has a weinmann 610 centerpole break. It is converted into ss. I am a virgin when it comes to bikes. I dont really know what i have on my hands. Everyone seems to have a differnt opinion. Can anyone tell me what year they think it is from, and if it is a good quality moto.

    Probably mid 70 or 80's. Its not a prized collector bike but it is perfect for building a simple single speed.

    Pics are essential if we're going to take a stab at it.. Also, if you still have the original components, they will have date codes on them that will help you narrow it down. You can use the Vintage Trek Component Dates Page to figure out the date codes.

    Good luck!
