    MotoBecane Super Mirage

    I saw one of these today. Anyone know where it fit in the Moto lineup? I'm just curious as the frame was too large for me.

    Moto used the word "Mirage" and "Super Mirage" for quite awhile. Generally, they were the 2nd or 3rd up from bottom of the line. As opposed to an entry Nomade they would have better quality, usually SunTour, gear and often a 2 tone paint. Same hi-ten frame and similar weight in the high 20s.

    Good bikes. Many agree that Motos had superb paint and decaling at all price points so if yours is preserved it should be a looker.
