On a Motobecane 50V (and other models I assume) there is a lock in the front forks that prevent them from being turned if locked. I have two of this mopeds, one with a broken lock from theft and one with a good lock but no key.
I know that they sell replacement locks with keys - has anyone ever installed one of these? If so, how did you remove the previous lock from the front forks?
Also, does anyone know if a replacement key can be made for such a lock without the original key? I personally have no experience with lock-smithing and am not sure if this is possible.
