Introduction

Hello, I am pretty new to bicycles. I found an old Motobecane Mirage at a yard sale that I'm trying to fix up, and found this site while searching for info on that. Last thing I need, another hobby project! I hope to get this bike ridable and get a few rides in this fall, then I'll have all winter to really clean it up and tinker with it.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Thanks for the suggestion about Classic and Vintage. I hadn't looked at it too deeply yet, not sure whether my questions fit there or Mechanics better. Do you think that people who read Classics and Vintage would know more about my bike?

We LIVE for this stuff . Yes, some of the folks at the Bicycle Mechanics forum would know too, but they would focus on the mechanicals.

We focus on the bike. Did I mention that we will need photos ?
