what model is my moby

andrew wraight /

Hi all. I have recently purchased this mobylette but now i have recieved the registration document back no model is listed. I have no idea what model it is, someone said it was a "40", the previous owner said it was an "AV42". I think after looking at images on the internet it looks like a "CADY". Can anyone help? Cheers fellow moped owners.

we nice, im jealous

Re: what model is my moby

Also i thought cadys have a rear gas tank...not one in the frame

Re: what model is my moby

That is a early 40 - very handsome indeed!

The Cadys have a monocoque tank same as a serie 50 (except by looks the M3PRTS-G which has an oil tank under the seat to make it the only oil injected production Motobecane).

Wow, so clean. Rare find, keep care of it!

The next question is what colour should i paint it. The previous owner painted it this colour and he said originally it was a blue/grey colour. I thought of maybe orange and white. Does anyone know where replacement stickers for the tank and engine covers can be bought and if it is a 40 model what should they say.

Re: what model is my moby

The green on on the UK Moby forum has the right tank stickers for the european model, also the right colours for the chain guards. That is the 40T in the UK thread with the front suspension...

Oh, it was painted. Looked good in the pic, hmm.

If you pull off the forks, and look down the frame tube, you'll discover the original color. That's how I found mine.

Check out item number 320928670334 on ebay. Does anyone think that these will fit my moby as i think they would be a nice addition. And do i need special brackets to fasten them on or can i make some.
