Motobecane Grand Jubilee 1978

Found this near Seattle. I shouldn't be looking, but it seems like a decent value. Would love to trade my commuter for a light tourer. It fits. Seatpost may not be original

These are pretty nice bikes this one looks to need a servicing and some new consumables the tires and chain look a bit iffy. I would say $150 as presented. If you go to check it out make sure the seat and steerer tube's aren't damaged from the over raised laid back seat post and way to high stem, both of which should probably be changed for safety if you get the bike.

Get it if the price is right. Absolutely great ride quality. My Motobe Grand Jubilee is one of six bicycles that I kept after liquidating my former fleet...

Thanks for the quote and tips! Looks like everything is fairly sound.
