Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

From the 50s assume it's a usa bike in that shape. Thats a really fair price. I could see that going for 2k or more just because of the age of the bike and shape.

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

Looks like its was washed, waxed and detailed 20 minutes prior to the shows taping. New looking front tire too.

A can of WD40 does wonders , doesn't it ? LOL

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

Very cool, look at the little bitty shocks on the rear? Nice machine, would say worth that money, especially if it runs.

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

Wow that is a pretty bike. I like the little tool kit under the seat too.

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

Interesting note, the grease fitting on the clutch shaft is very different than mine, I wonder if it is supposed to look like that or they had a more traditional fitting back then?

Looks like a plunger suspension . ;)

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

AV75 Monoluxe single speed rated to 26km/h (20mph) with composite clutch dimoby. That one on the program is the single speed...

AV78 Superluxe variated originally rated to 33km/h (25mph) with the 6 balls composite clutch and detente which would 'click' through 3 speeds settings.

Made those plunger frame models 1956-59 only, all had the homologation dated plates on them with 27MAR1956 as the acceptance date. Might not be a 1956 but they never called for verification of their 'facts'... lol

Exactly....Karl here in Charlotte has a 59 with the original leg shields he is about to restore. Super cool bikes.

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

If that has only 500 miles on it then I’m only 20 years old. Look closely at the motor.

With a terrible seat like that, 500 miles could take eons (one mile or less per trip). LOL!

Re: Mobylette on Pickers.....

Probably coulda got more if it didn't have a broken pedal.
