Motobecane

Our local auction house has a very nice Motobecane 50 VLA that will be auctioned Saturday night. What is the maximum I should bid on it?

Personally, I wouldn't bid more than $150 for it. Motobecanes are the biggest pains in the asses to get dialed in. If you do get it and need parts for it, I've got tons of NOS Moby parts in my garage. Good Luck!

Lar,

Thanks for the info. If I buy it Saturday it will be a long term project as I have surgery set for Monday and expect to be down for about 6 weeks--mobile but no lifting.

Good luck on your recovery...recently had knee surgery two weeks ago and the hardest part has been sitting around so that's good you can still be mobile! Looking forward to how the auction goes!
