1960s Motobecane

I happened upon an old Motobecane in my parent's basement that my dad had as a kid. From what I can tell, it's most likely a '61 or '62. Haven't had much luck tracking down any information on them, manuals, where to find parts, differences between the 1970s Motobecane models, etc. I saw a couple pictures of really nice refitted ones in the photo gallery here, but just wondering if anyone had some general information on these older Motobecanes.

Re: 1960s Motobecane

Are any of the parts for the 40/50/7's compatible with these older ones?

It was in your dad's basement all these years and you just happened upon it now? Man you should've been riding it for the past seven years!

That should clean up nicely!
