1976/77 Motobecane Super Mirage

This was last weeks find- was a mess - lots of dirt, dust, oil.... you name it. Come to find out, all that gunk protected this bike pretty well- looking pretty good Wish it was a 21 instead of a 23

Yes, I have sometimes found extremely dirty bikes where the layers of dirt protected the paint. Its great to get a nice surprise.

Nice find. Looks pretty well taken care of, for its age.
