fs: 1978 Motobecane 50v - Boston

My uncle purchased this moped brand new in 1978, put 2200 miles on it, and then left it in grandmother's garage until I rescued it last year. She is all original save for a kreemed tank, new belt, new petcock filter and fuel line, new grips, and a few new cables.

The bike turns over on the first few kicks and currently tops out just under 30moh. The bike is still fitted with the original Gurtner 10mm carb, hence the low top speed. I will include a 14.12 Dellorto sha carb and matching intake for you to play with and grab a few more mph on the top.

Everything works - lights, horn, brakes, etc. There is a small amount of rust on the rear wheel, other than that this Moby is a real gem.

$450

Are you sure it is a 78?

looks just a touch older to me.

Nice bike for the money, the sidecovers and flywheel cover can be hard to find.

Re: fs: 1978 Motobecane 50v - Boston

Paul you're right. It's actually a '77 not a '78. May 1977 to be exact.

Re: fs: 1978 Motobecane 50v - Boston

I knew it was a 77. I have 2 of them. Wish you were closer to Memphis, TN
