Fred’s 103 gets a new look

Last time Freddie test rode my 50cc motobecane race bike he really liked the riding position better than on his peugeot 103 with 80’s style twisted handle bars and high seat position, so he brought his bike back to make the conversion. It feels like a new bike much safer to ride.

I lowered and pushed the seat back  just like we used to do it as kids in France. Instead of using cheap clip-ons that never get tight enough, I bent, cut and welded clubman handle bars just like on my race bike. I installed a new Lusito throttle n grip, my favorite, and upgraded the ignition with the MVT Millenium cdi from
