    Oh c'mon... Show me your Motobecane!

    I don't care if it's a Team Champion or Nomade. They're all eye candy to me!

    Nice bikes Bill.... I have to wonder why Swiss threading didn't prevail... Standard metric threads + sensible left hand threading on the fixed cup. Kind'a made sense.

    Never enough Moto's Jim... BTW - are you holding that bike up or holding it down? Moto's tend to ride like a dream and weigh like a feather.

    Here's my Grand Touring - I like this bike a whole lot.

    My 1977 (I think) Mirage in it's current form.

    I'm still not entirely sure about it at the moment. When I converted from 27" to 700c, an old set of MAFAC Racers were all that I had that had sufficient reach. Still fiddling with those bastards, and I haven't quite gotten them to a point where I'm comfortable with them.

    Mines on the way. Still have to lace up the wheels. I considered doing a repaint on the frame but it's only a Nomade and I'm staying all original. 1392439146069.jpg

    It doesn't look like it needs paint to me - In fact it looks like it will be a beauty.

    My Mirage, when I was trying it out as a single speed. I've since replaced the wheels and added SKS Chromoplastic fenders which nearly match the original Motobecane silver paint.

    I have 2 Moto's, both restored.
    Early 70's Le Champion, rescued from oblivion a couple years ago. Shown here as a racer, it's now set up as a sport tourer.



    '75 Grand Jubile, which I bought new. It's been extensively modified several times.
