nice way to show that your bike runs, w/a still image..do you have any spares for sale? chain adjuster bolts or shock bolts & nuts? i'm too far away to buy this ride.

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

There’s a link in the craigslist ad to a video of it running.

Per other questions, too many odds and ends to list, so maybe, yes, I don’t know. Won’t part, sorry.(edited)

First pic shows lights on, wheel spinning, giggle all you like, a pretty rare bike with most of the good bits, seat, mags, rack etc, he has the correct bars, if it has the side covers I would say well worth it, that pipe gags me though, but in the parts pic is the stock one, de-restricted it would set the bike back to "proper" looks. I say a good buy, were it near me I would for sure go have a look. These are not easy to find.(edited)

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

Yeah that pires is a pile.

Stock included, I believe derestricted.

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

Ported the mags too with speedholes

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

Update: I de-ported everything listed above, filled it all back in with quiksteel, so basically stock now.

And installed a speed hamster in the seat compartment.

Bump, obviously.

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

Still feeding the speed hamster speed.
