New to Mopeds

"I am being offered a 1980 motobecane #53503297 for a 100 dollars. Is it worth it? the person does NOT know if it runs, and there is no key withg it to lock the forks and seat compartment. both chains need replacing and the handle bar grips could be replaced too. is there a place to buy parts on the web? or a motobecane web site? more interestingly, how do you PERNOUNCE Motobecane???? I didn't see other name on it. Other then ""La Moped"" on the chain guard."
