What flavour of Motobecane have we here. This seller really likes to say "bike", in various forms. Maybe, it's kind of like saying "SQUIRREL!" to a dog, except instead to cyclists.

Could be a late '70s Grand Touring. Would be a good deal at $80 CAD.

While I agree that it appears to be a Grand Touring, it looks circa 1982-1984 to me, based on the Stronglight 99 crankset. It looks like it still has the Huret front derailleur but has lost the Duopar on the back, in favour of a Shimano model. Looks like both brakes have been replaced, as they would have orignally been centre-pull. This looks like it has a side-pull on the front and a dual-pivot of the rear.

Too small for this rider at any rate. Where would a grand touring fit in the ranks of frame quality? Looks like someone bought it, and with probable good cause.
