Hello Chris, I hope you aren't going to remove all the braze-ons and other extraneous bits? Do you have photos of the Motobecane? I just got a very nice Motobecane Grand Jubile mixte which is still waiting for me to change the tyres before I dare ride it more than down the block...


Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

Good job! And you understand the wisdom of having at least a front brake, too .
