We’re working on the coolest little bike ever, a 1956 Motobécane moped. We just got tires from England and have started getting it ready for the road! In the meantime, here’s a YouTube video showing a bunch of Motobécane mopeds in their fully restored glory. Of course, ours will look much better.
Motobécane was a French company started in 1923. For many years it was France’s biggest manufacturer of motorcycles, and later expanded into mopeds. According to our good friends at Wikipedia, the last Motobécane moped rolled off the line in 1985.
