F/S $40 motobecane

Crazy deal because it's crazy crappy.

Something's fishy here-look at his address.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

Samz...

Finally! people see things my way!

Those mags would go for 100-120 if they're cleaned up!

I try to explain this to people that it doesn't matter what condition the over-all is... as long as the parts are in good order you can make a KILLING off of one bike!

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

Cool, in addition to the mags, the 51V has a locking trunk under the flip-up seat and a spring-loaded telescoping luggage rack to accommodate different-sized packages. Assuming they're still usable, those parts would be worth something, too... I'd love to put that rack on my plain-Jane 50V.

I've never seen a pair of moby mags go for over 40 bucks unless it was some puch kid who would stop at nothing to simply have mags on his bike.

I'm thinking of driving up there for this worn out poor thing and selling the parts to MA interested parties. The seller has a phony address listed though.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

true the address is fishy

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

"pokeindenoze" is just some kind of verbal play on "Poconos", which he says he is near. With a 99% positive feedback rating on 193 transactions, I wouldn't be too worried about fraud.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

Anyone need the mags on that Moby? I have a pair.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

Those Moby mags take strange bearings, so BEWARE!

Everyone in Eastern PA calls the Poconos "Poke In Da Nose"

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

They may have a strange bearing, but I just picked up a parts bike with Mags on it and believe me... they're worth it.

(Especially now that I've painted them GOLD with a POLISHED LIP!!!!)

Muah-ha-ha!!!!!

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

I could use a rear mag if it's in great shape... Name a price Kev...

the mags on mobys are significantly heavier, so you will have a noticeable slowdown.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

Bah... I'd rather go slow in style, than go fast on spokes.

Dan

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

what wrong with spokes?

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

🇮🇹💦 Of the Loin /

mags are overrated. I really dont see why people go crazy over them.

the brakes are harder to find (usually a wierd size), and if they break you are fucked. Spokes you just buy more spokes.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

A. How would you break a mag?

B. Moby mags are 90mm like most Puch/Tomos/Motobecane brake pads.

C. I just wanted the racey look and an extra surface to paint.

I'll definately keep my spokes in a back corner somewhere in case something does happen... but for now, I'll keep the mags. :)

Plus, I'm 220... so it's not like 4-5lbs a wheel will matter much with my fat ass on it. :-D

the heavier you are the more weight matters dude.

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

I was being silly.. Maitland.

By the way, where did you pick up that exhaust? RCV? How much did it run you?

Dan

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

🇮🇹💦 Of the Loin /

my sarcasm meter is apparently broken :(

i think it cost me 140 USD shipped, but I got in on a bulk order, so it might cost you a little more

Re: F/S $40 motobecane

i broke a mag when i hit one of those giant steel plates they use to cover holes when they do construction work.
