58 Mobylette sold by Wards

I am working on a 58 Mobylette made by Motobecan. I need to pick your brains on this. On the right side of the pedal crank there should be a sprocket but on the one I'm working on there isn't. There is no sign of there being a spot where one was mounted so I'm wondering if it was somehow attached to the right hand crank arm?

I don't have the RH crank arm to look at.

Thanks in advance for your help and insight.

On the AV88 the sprocket is welded to the right side pedal arm. It's probably the same on the AV89.

Re: 58 Mobylette sold by Wards

I found the parts book for the older Moby's and yes you are very right. Now all I have to do is find the RH crank arm.

Wishing everyone a blessed New Year

I have a spare, but I'm just not ready to sell parts yet.

Re: 58 Mobylette sold by Wards

Thank you for the link to the dealer in France who has the pedal arm and chain wheel assembly. The price is reasonable at 35 Euro's, and I have contacted them about the cost of shipping. That maybe a deal killer but I could be pleasantly surprised, we will see.

Cheers

Yes, that is what I'm looking for. Haven't heard back from the dealer in France about the cost of shipping. I'm going by a local bicycle shop and see if he knows of where I might find something like that. You never can tell.

Cheers and thank you all for your help.

On the 50v the sprocket is welded to the pedal shaft, not the pedal arm.

Re: 58 Mobylette sold by Wards

Yes it is. You and others in this forum let me know. So now the hunt is on.

Thank you for getting back to me.

Re: 58 Mobylette sold by Wards

Mine is an AV88 and as much as I wish that the sprocket was welded to the shaft it isn't.

Did go by the local bicycle shop and they couldn't help me. But it was worth a shot.

Again, thanks to all who have responded. UI will get there.

Ebay is an option, but you'll have to check regularly. I'll try to keep an eye out.

Re: 58 Mobylette sold by Wards

Just make your own if you know how to weld. some of those darn french pedal arms have weird thread pitch too.

Re: 58 Mobylette sold by Wards

You are right about the thread pitch, on my Moby the threads are 1.00 while most others are 1.25.
