tres cool NOS Moto on Ebay

I found this pretty neat. It looks to be all swan song parts by companies that soon after died.

I don't like the top tube "badge".

The same seller is trying to pass off a PR10 as a PY10.

Nice looking! Love the chainring treatment

My guess is early/mid 80s

Never have seen hubs like that. It looks like the flanges are pressed on hub like old junky steel hubs (but I doubt they would put a junky hub on a bike with this kind of frame).

Agreed....my Jubilee Sport has the same badge...looks like it belongs on the trunk of a car...not on a bike...very out of place...

My old Prolight had that badge, and it always caught on my sorts so I pulled it off.

I am not a big motobecane fan, but it looks great NOS and with Pelissier hubs too.

My '84 Mirage Sport has the same badge. Makes sense though, as Motobecane was also into mopeds and motorcycles were they not?

They couldn't even glue it on straight. I don't like the Weinmann 605 brakes either. Still, it looks halfway cool all around.

I like the earlier Motobecanes, but the '80s graphics on this one turn me off. I feel the same way about '80s Peugeots and a lot of other '80s bikes.

I don't like that the seat post is jammed all the way into the tube. Is that how it would have been packed into the shipping box years ago? I wonder if it could have frozen in place?

Nice Motobecane with nearly all French parts, except for the pedals (SR). The Pelissier hubs look entry level, I have a set of Pelissier 2000, they are light, sealed and spin like silk! Somehow the bike looses itself with the paint and yes the logo on the top tube is really funky.

Cheers



It's all French! Viva Le France!

I love a lot of Motobecanes, but to this one, I say: eh.

That looks like a Helicomatic rear hub. Stay away.

I'd roll that no problem. I'm wondering what it will sell for.

I thought the Motobecane would have also features some Spidel components when I read the title on the post. Dissapointed to see that it didn't. If anything, Spidel really symbolizes the end of the era of big French component makers. Maybe if Mavic joined in too, Spidel could be still alive today with more French components for the bike markets?....but they could have taken Mavic down with them in flames........I dunno.... Nice 105bis crankset though and I also love the "super Francaise" touch from the Pelissier hubs. The label/logos on them are just superbe period and soooo French! If anything, I'd dump the Weinmann brakes on the bike and mount up some spidel LS-1 sidepulls on it instead. Most Weinmann brakesets always looked kinda crude to me, plus I never liked their on/off type caliper quick release mechanisms. Too much plastic on them too....well I guess they did mostly supply brakesets for mid to entry level bikes for many companies. There is a top of the line Weinmann brakset though that I'm interested in seeing, The "Carrera 700 series sidepulls that were supposed to have been mounted on some of Peugeot's top of the line mid 80's bikes. I only saw long range pics of it from Peugeot borchures but never seen them in detail. That's another brakeset i might have wanted on this bike. I wonder what that brakeset really looks like close up.....

I've always loved the way those cranks look.

A helicomatic Pelissier Hub? I think not.

OK, I stand corrected.

I'm "watching" the bike on ebay, so I'll let you know what it sells for.
