Motobecane Super Champion.

I bought this bike in a fairly poor condition. I've replaced both the tubular tyres for new. Redone the bar tape and cleaned and tuned it up. As far as I can tell the parts are all original. The pump is certainly correct era and in the colours of the French flag. The odometer on the front wheel works like new, is accurate, and resets ok. It runs super smooth with no problems.

It's always interesting to see the different models spec'd in European countries. The Huret Challenger rear derailleur is the 1st version so, assuming it is OEM, the bicycle should be a 1975-1976 model. Please repost with the serial number in this thread: Motobecane Serial Number Database TIA.
