$400 ******************** Posted 2hrs ago in Waterford, CT


Ad title says $400 but in body of ad says $450.
Don't know the Motobecane models but between them and the Gitane there are 4 french saddles!!!

Front Motobecane looks like a boom bike (albeit a nice condition one) with I think steel wheels but rear bike might be something nice.
Gitane has steel wheels
Ps. Photos don't show the "xtra frame serviced and ready to ride" but presumably another Motobecane?

I find the mobile facebook marketplace to not be very good. But on my laptop, it is easier to browse the marketplace. It would be nice if they were more of a mix between the algorithm returned "this is what you want" results and the crude but easy to find what you want craigslist pages. I know there are those that hate social media for a plethora of reasons and I don't care for a lot of it, but for looking for old bikes to satisfy my wrench turning itches, craigslist is slim pickings in my area. Most of what I find anymore is on FB.

Boston craigslist


What's your size? I've got a Pro-Miyata I'm thinking of selling. Mine's around a 52 c-t-c seat tube. Not a complete bike, but lots of good parts to go with it. PM me, as well as anyone else that might be interested.
