1979 Motobecane Grand Jubile' - nice find

Found this while garage sale-ing... A 1979 Motobecane Grand Jubilee, which somebody converted to a triple - but they kept the old short-cage rear derailleur on it so had obvious problems...

I visited my used-parts-bin and found a nice Suntour X-1 to put on it, and did a few other upgrades (new wheels, freewheel, chain, cables) and it's running pretty slick now.

I've also posted a "what's it worth" in the appraisals thread and would appreciate any input you have.
