Felix in Berlin Germany has sent this, his Motobecane Mirage Sport—clean and classy from top to bottom. Felix, I wasn’t familiar with those Crud Roadracer Fenders (Mudguards) until you mentioned them. I like them so much, I’m thinking of picking up a set for myself.
hi, I’m Felix.
I’m 19 years old, student from Berlin, Germany- and bought my first racing bicycle.
It’s a Motobécane Mirage Sport from the 80’s – dunno the exact year.
it was 160€. that is approximately 240 dollars. I invested some more 120 € since:
new tires (conti gp 4000s), new bowden cable for the rear wheel, centering both wheels – such minor things. i also bought an old brooks and fixed brown tape to the end of the bartape.
but the overall configuration is completely original.
I just love it – cleaned it several times very thoroughly which has created a special binding to the cycle.
there are just two more things i want to have: leather chainstay guard from velo orange and 35 mm honjo hammered fenders. but they’re so expensive – i even thought about taking some that are cheaper and good-looking – like crud roadracer. what do you guys think?
greetings – love your website
