sorry its so blurry, i'll get another pic. but by what you guys can see, what is its purpose?

Re: whats this for? (motobecane)

Do you mean the carburator? Because that's what you have pictured in the first image.

yea man that looks like a carb

Re: whats this for? (motobecane)

that's the carb alright...with the long intake that the newer model mobys had...I think. No cables go into the part you were showing, but two cables go in the top of the carb. One's the throttle and one's the choke. If you don't have them, go buy bicycle brake cables and file the heads down a little. They'll work fine. If you need a little help installing them, email me.

It's the Moby's original carburator, should be a Gurtner. Install throttle and choke to it and enjoy your Moby!

Re: whats this for? (motobecane)

I recently bought a mobyllete motobecane V51 (series V50), year 1981. It was in good shape (pictures in www.motoretas.cjb.net), i clean it, replaced the fuel valve, and it runs. My problem is when i slow down, like for example, if i have to stop in a crossroad it starts to choke and drowns. then, i cant start it, the spark plug is black. I know what is the problem, there is going to much fuel to the carburator. What can i do ??? If you can, please help me. I dont know how to tune the carb !!! Some pics and instructions i would aprreciate !!!

Thanks.
