Your ride is strikingly similar to my GR. I bought mine new in 1973. I have 531 tubing, Campy Nuovo Record gearing, etc. Some of the differences that I noticed is a slight difference in the "M" logo on the head tube and your MOTOBECANE on the downtube is in block letters while mine is the same script lettering as the Made In France. My best friend has a Jubilee he bought a few years after my GR and it's very different. No Campy, no 531 tubing, no script lettering, different logo, etc. My guess would be is yours is around a mid-70s GR; maybe '75 or so.

If I could ever get decent digital pics of my bike, I'd post them.
