Just got a couple of motobecanes

A buddy of mine had these squirreled away, and now they're added to my growing hoarder pile of mopeds.

Now I gotta learn about variated bikes...

Plus a bonus sachs 505 1A, and a bunch of parts.

Nice clean motobecane engine, but needs a crank

The variator gives the Moby the "Mobynugen". Get to know the magic behind the Gurties! Maybe you can made a runner out of the pile.

Re: Just got a couple of motobecanes

The orange one is in great shape, with all the motor parts blasted, but it needs a crank. That's the one I'll build up completely, using whatever I need from the red one.

The red one has a huge glob of silicon under the tank, which is never a good sign, so it'll probably get parted out, or butchered into some kind of custom bairdco abortion.
