What's a Motobecane Mobylette worth?

Hi guys,

What do you think a complete and running 1978 Motobecane Mobylette M50V is worth?

And while we're at it, what's a 1977 Peugeot 103 with an engine that starts, but won't hold worth?

I am on the hunt, but I don't really know the real money value of anything.

Thanks.

Re: What's a Motobecane Mobylette worth?

the market is really going up on all mopeds. i'd say anywhere from $350 to $750 depending on condition.

Re: What's a Motobecane Mobylette worth?

Re: What's a Motobecane Mobylette worth?

Ohmyf-ing-gawd. That is a right pretty ped. You have certainly motivated me.

actually I got a 77 moby 50 and a 78 moby 7 for free now that you mention it. i was nice enough to keep the guy from having to take them to the junkyard himself.

unfortunately the 50 got stolen before I could get it running.

fortunately the same guy sold me 2 puch murrays for 100 each as well.

needless to say he's my new best friend.

my murray is my new favorite, and I gave the 7 to my girlfriend.

so apparently mopeds are getting handed out like jesus flyers in nashville.

my 76 50v was free - soon to be sent to the dump!

a little enthusiasm gets you a long way in life.

im currious about the mentioned 14.14 carb used - is there a better size for these sexy wheels?

I have a 1977 Motobecane Mobylette Traveler I'm looking to unload. Wondering what I could sell it for. In ok condition but it doesn't idle, needs a little work. In Wisconsin if anyone is interested. You'd think these things are like vintage/antique treasures! They're so rare and cool, I can't believe people just get them for free because they're dump-bound- so sad! (sad they're going to dumps I mean, pretty rad you're scoring them for free of course!)

That's not a Traveler. That's a Model 40 which was the base model offered back in 1977.

Re: What's a Motobecane Mobylette worth?

ok, my bad. thanks. It didn't come with any kind of manual or anything. How do you know exactly what it is? Should it say somewhere on the bike? Like a # or code or something?(edited)

Vin tag should be on the fork head tube.
