' need opinions on possible bike (vintage Motobecane) purchase please!
I saw a decent condition Raleigh-Motobecane road bike or maybe its a touring bike in my local pawnshop. It's priced at $100. Stickers are in French. It looks like steel frame to me but I didn't bring a magnet so I couldn't really tell. Its fairly light and best of all, it fits me just fine.
It has few scratches here and there (but nothing really bad) and it has the usual flat tires. Brakes seems to work fine also ( I didn't ride it).
Will this be a good commuter/touring bike? Is the price good enough or should I just save for a new touring/commuter bike?
Thanks in advance!
