New Old Mixte
My better half recently informed me that I am the proud owner of a late 70s Motobecane mixte. The bike was a Chicago Craigslist find in decent original condition but will be tweaked to perfection and eventually become my all-weather commuter bike. The to-do list includes greasing and repacking bearings, installing new brake tables, derailleur cables, handlebars, saddle, fenders, lights, and flat-resistant tires. Roughly half of the needed parts will be purchased second-hand from Craigslist or Ebay and those being removed from the bike will be resold or repurposed for a future bike project. File the attached photos under “before” and stick around to see the final product.
