Motobecane Grand Jubile’

Actually, more like one half a Grand Jubile’, whatever one half a grand is (500?). It’s missing its wheels, front derailleur, saddle and original crankset. …And the handlebars are bent. …And some of the little Mafac bits are broken. …And the Vitus decals are pretty worked over. …And the seatpost looks like it was gnawed by beavers.

This will either turn into a good “before and after” story, or it’ll be a dismal failure. Stay tuned!

  1. Someday, another Motobecane will barter for my attention. One made in France, because it doesn’t seem like a real Motobecane unless it had to cross the Atlantic to get to me. Neat project.
