I picked up my very first moped last week and I'm having some trouble identifying what year and model it is. (see photo). It was sold as a 1957 but I think it may be more of a early 60s model. I'm pretty sure it's an AV-42 but alas someone took the VIN Plate off. And my French isn't good enough for the Motobecane Club site. ; ) I did find these numbers near the back wheel:
Frame # 42160530
Engine # 50008310
Of course I'm not sure if these are definitive ID numbers but they might narrow the search.
I'm also looking for a manual (in English) too.
Thanks for any help!
(I know, I know but even my mechanic Jesse of Puddle Cutters isn't sure what to make of it!)
