This looks very similar to a PX8 that I bought in 1972. i got it at a French Military post exchange in Kaiserslautern, FRG where I was stationed in the Army. Components, rack and fenders were similar to bike pictured. It also had Soubetiz headlight (with yelow bulb) and taillight. My bike was a French market bike.

I think it is euro-market tourist model. The Huret spin offs must have been added by the shop. Mafac Racers are at least correct for that vintage. What is the number on the bottom of the bottom bracket ? It is nice large frame, you don't see many of those.

My 1973 Motobecane Grand Record. I've had it since 74. Unused for several years and in rough shape after being stolen (and recovered!) and abused a few years back. This summer project turned it into a 1 x 10 with gravel friendly tires. New powdercoat, decals, etc. I masked and sprayed the lugs. Original frame, fork, Stronglight headset & BB & crank (I cut off the large ring). Original seat stem, steerer & bars, Mafac brakes. New wheelset, tubeless tires, rear DR, SRAM shifter. I love the ride, supple, fast enough, climbs, carries city ruts and bumps and gravel trails. These pics before I fine-tuned the setup. I've got about 150 miles on it the last few weeks, super.

Mystery French gravel conversion




The frame has had a quality repaint so there's no evidence of make or model. All French threading and Simplex forged dropouts. The serial is stamped under the bottom bracket but there are numbers on the dropouts as well. Either 26.4 or 26.6 seatpost. The frame weighs about 1,900 grams. Metric tubing. As pictured with 700x35 and 700x40 on front, the angles measure 71.5 ht and 73.5 seat tube. Probably originally built for 27s.
