I've got a 1976 Motobecane Mobylette Type 40T (Yellow) that needs a little work. The engine runs, I had it running for a while, once I got the ignition switch working. The engine's good, and I'm pretty sure the electrical will be fine with some wire replacement and replacing some lights. She's a hell of a ride at $70 at a yard sale!
However now I'm having trouble with the variator:
My issue is the pads on the variator are worn. A machinist friend of mine cut me some brake pads to fit it, we tried applying them with (don't laugh) epoxy, and as you can guess it ripped right off. I want to try a new angle, same brake pads, just rounded down a little bit so they're less likely to peel off, however I'm not sure which adhesive to use. Should I still use epoxy or is there something else? I have no idea what Motobecane used in the first place, I have the owner and repair manuals (not the originals, just dled pics of the pages) and I can't find anything. Please help.
