My name is Sara, currently residing on beautiful Lopez Island, Washington. Land of a million dreams – I am a novice at mechanics – but want to do this right. I am excited to finally have a reason to be on this web site!
I have recently acquired an attractive Motobecane 1976 type 50 v 30.. The body is in great shape - it is missing the chain guards and has some small amounts of rust. I have always wanted a small moped of some type and when this one came as an option I jumped! Please help educate me on some availability or the friendly faces of your community.
Today I took it to my very friendly and excited and highly recommended mechanic! Where he and I discussed what level of fixing to be done. I am looking for an owner’s manual - to cipher how to run and fix the charm. I am also looking for some parts of coarse. Carb, muffler, cables, and I had my eye on those chain guards. But the engine is most important.
Closest match to this bike - with chromed front fender , yellow, the logo in the middle of the body is different red and smaller - and not as shiny of an engine. Soon to be fixed!
Thank you for your help and time, I look forward to meeting the crew.
