Look on the underside of the bottom bracket for a date code and look closely at the pedals and cranks. I'm restoring a all original 1978 Champagne Gold Super Mirage. I know it's a 78 because the Atom 440 pedals have "1978 Made in France" engraved on them, the cranks have "77 J" stamped on them (I'm guesing the J = November), the hubs have "Normandy 1978" engraved on them, and the bottom bracket has 058 (May 1978) stamped into it. And all the parts match what's in the 1978 Motobecane catalog for the Super Mirage. FYI - the bottom bracket on mine is Swiss threaded.
