Double shed find with a back story....

Someone contacted me today offering two Motobecanes his parents had bought but barely rode. One has 56 miles, the other 114 miles. The house was being sold & the cleanout had begun.

Pretty perfect under all the grime.

The incredible thing is that I had originally sold the bikes from our Paramus, N.J. shop (Energy Plus)in 1979.

Small moped world!

Amazing story great deal!

Re: Double shed find with a back story....

Awesome find!

Re: Double shed find with a back story....

One went 28 miles and came home

The other did it... twice

Wonder what was there?

Can you google map a 28 mile radius to the home and solve the mystery?

With all of your shed finds posted, this is the best.

Just back from a ride on the red one (had 56 original miles). Runs like a top, only needed to clean the carb & free up the choke slide. Tank getting final cleaning now.

Odd to think that I had prepped this bike for sale in 1979 and was the last one to put a wrench on it until yesterday. 41 years ago.

Larry, They’re Mobys.....put them back in the shed and don’t use them if you want them to continue to run good.....lol.

Re: Double shed find with a back story....

That is AMAZING, of course they run perfect, no one has messed with them! Congrats, very jealous! Backstory is just as cool.
