I have a 1979 Motobecane Moby which never came with an air filter (as well as the wire-on plate or whatever it was that originally held the air filter on). I tried using a jury rigged filter made from wide-spaced wire mesh and dirt-bike Air Filter foam, but that restricted the airflow far too much and cut my speed in half. I was wondering what I could adapt to use as an air filter, as finding an original is proving difficult?
