I’m going to build 2 rigid frame Motobecane 40T bikes with fast Doppler 50cc engines based on my Av10 race bike set up with stock cases.
1- The orange frame (bought in the US) is a commissioned project. We’ll use a set a red Grimeca mag wheels (imported from France) and powder coat them, mount an EBR hydraulic fork with disc brake. All the engine parts have been ordered, I just need to find a Doppler or Bidalot variator.
2- The 1971 blue frame project (imported from France) will be for sale. I might use some spoked wheels for a more retro look.
I worked on a customer’s 1978 Motobecane 7 moped that was starting but not running right. It was my first time riding a moby 7 and even though the engine is non-variated it’s a really fun bike.
