Mirage :P

hey guys, newb question but, I have a old motobecane mirage, around the 70's era.

how would I know what kind of crankset it is, and how to remove it.

I want to convert this bad boy into a singlespeed/fixie. all the help appreciated thanks.

I'm going to search in the mean time, not sure if it is a swiss or french threading. I'm not that knowledgeable about bikes.
