Anyone know the sizes that Motobecane Grand Touring mixte frames were made in?  I know it probably varied through the years.

The Manor & Meadow Tour

is a mere sixty days out.  I still need committments for volunteers to be ride marshalls.  Marshalls will assist the Ride Captain keeping the group together and handling enroute breakdowns.  PM me via The Chainlink if you'd like to help out.

Yikes, I'm definitely interested in the BB. Do I have to bid on it??
Comment by Kevin Mulcky on October 21, 2011 at 5:50am

Sorry for not checking with the group first, but I'm selling a 103mm VO french threaded BB on ebay right now. It's at $15.

Free delivery within the city limits for Chainlinkers :)




Also - My Juenet City Bike might be for sale...It's hard to put a price on these things.

I'll be out Sunday for the La Fête Nationale / Seersucker Social Ride on my Motobecane Grand Touring.  Come on out with your French bikes and join us.  Now if I can only figure out what a Frenchman might wear for such an event :^D  Something chic in linen???

Anyone know the sizes that Motobecane Grand Touring mixte frames were made in?  I know it probably varied through the years, but did they ever make anything in a mixte as large as 55cm?
Comment by BalloonBiker on February 11, 2011 at 10:26am
I'm actually going to sell the motobecane that I was considering canibalizing.  The cotter pins are completely gone, but it does have a nice internal three speed hub, it's a pretty blue, with matching fenders and a step through frame.  I think that it's either a 19 or 20 inch frame.  If you want a bike to fiddle with, I'd like $20 for it!

Anybody seen this?  I had no idea that Peugeot made folding bikes.  Looks like these are rare collector's items for those that get into that sort of thing.
