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

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

And the funniest thing I ever mistyped

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.

MA special today only: $600 (edited)

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

Bump, $500

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

$500 for a running Moby 50V in my books is a good deal

plus all the speed parts

Re: 1980 motobecane Le moped $750 SoCal

Craigslist ad expired, text here:

Time for little baby to fly the coop!

Running, needs tuneup, comes with tons of parts and upgrades. Permanent collector plate, clean title, never needs registration.

Points replaced with treats CDI. Comes with 70+ cc head, piston, and rings, ready to be installed and or modified. Basically unused tires. Mild porting of the head probably has it at 55 cc.

Too many little parts and pieces to list, including original carb, original points system, chrome fender, wires bolts nuts knickknacks handlebars speedometers, you name it. Instructional manual and gasket material as well.

Fires up and gets me around town, but a little leak in the carb, kind of sad low end, general tinkering recommended. Best for someone who either knows what they’re doing, or Recognizes the value and is willing to learn. It’s fun! I did it for a bunch of years until it sat for a couple years now, time to let it go.
