I know a couple of guys that have them and have no complaints. A friend of my ordered one last year for a donor bike , used the parts for build and sold the frame on ebay. He got the whole bike for less them he could get just the parts. As Cobba said unless are going to drop a lot of cash, just about all mass produced frames come from Taiwan or China

motobecane can be a really good bike, sort of depends on when it was made.
