I went to our local motorcycle junkyard to look for some kids dirt bike forks to get for a build I’m considering and this moped was in the show room and it was priced right.
So I ended up coming home with this really clean Motobecane 7!
I’ve never owned a motobecane but my research says this was the cheapest of the line in the day. I just really like the looks even though the engineering seems suspect to me. It started right up when I put some gas in it! Are they’re any experts on this bike here? Is there any common failure points I should take a look at. Even though I’ve rode and wrenched on mopeds for over 10 years now these bikes are totally new to me so I’d appreciate some community knowledge! I have a couple months before it’s warm enough to ride here.
