Motobecanes- the Cadillac of Mopeds, Lets see some Frenchies!!

Motobecanes are gorgeous mopeds and may be my number 1 favorite. Beautiful, stylish, and the essence of what a moped is. If you have a Motobecane, it’s roll call time, share some pics so we can see what’s out there and enjoy some beautiful Frenchies!

Never thought orange was cool until I got this one. Got to find some (white?) chain guard/covers, if anyone’s holding...

Ought to be required to have at least one fully stock 50V for comparison to other brands. These bikes surprise me every time I ride them after being on my E50 or V1 bikes—love me some variators

Nile that orange one is dope and the leg shields for it is killer.

Shawn that vlx is one of my favorite looking mobys. Love that blue with the orange and yellow striping.

1971 Cady M1PR. Swapped to a 14:10 Dellorto. Roached tank/frame... only way to salvage it was to weld on a crossbar and auxiliary tank mount. Is it just me or are Motobecane tanks more prone to rusting out? (edited)
