a friend of a friends cousin has them right now...but when he get's back from his vacation from HAWAII he'll unpack them from his carry on luggage bag of essentials...but his cell #is 555-OU812...

his name is ...Omy Nevrhadamoby

e-bay..might have some @ 25$ per cover, it's the most missing part of the moby...if you get a new/used one again, they will be gone also...

people don't generally mess w/the paint on them, it's sacrilege...i'll bet p00ty has the same mind set....not many people sell their covers, there's no such thing as extra.

Re: WTB: 1979 Motobecane 50V Side Covers

might as well since you already did on the moped.

Re: WTB: 1979 Motobecane 50V Side Covers

Paul Silva /

What the fuck is your problem? It’s not even my moped, built military style for a friend who served our country and you’re going to act like little bitch over a motorized bicycle? Seriously what’s your issue?

Re: WTB: 1979 Motobecane 50V Side Covers

Paul Silva /

I really don’t have time to deal with your ignorance, find something better to do.
