Some sweet and tender one-owner goodness in the form of a Motobecane Grand Record. Thanks to Rich B in CA for this beauty.
I bought my Motobecane when I 1st got into riding as a frame only about 30 years ago & built it up w/ quality Campy Super Record & Cinelli components. The freewheel is even Campy, an Aluminum 12X23, It’s made of Reynolds 531 tubing & has Swiss threading for the Bottom Bracket. The pedals shown on the Picture are the more modern Look clipless pedals. I have the Campy SR & Cinelli clips put away. Although billed a racing frame, the wheelbase is a little longer than other race bikes, but appropriate for the period it was made. That said, it is a very comfortable riding bike w/ the longer wheelbase. I enjoyed it immensely on long rides through the hills/mountains of Woodside, CA on many occasions. It later gave way to other bikes that I built up in my 30 years of riding, It is still in remarkably new condition for it’s age, as I was & still am proud to be it’s owner…
