Couldnt resist this when offered so grabbed it with both hands back in January 2015 but only picked it up yesterday a late 70's (according to date stamp on hubs) Motobecane Mirage Sport fully original except from a set of guards , even down to the early 600 mechs , its not light as only Vitus 888 tubing but should be ok .

If i get chance i will give it few rides round the block and maybe treat it to a commute or two this week

1st short ride done and all works fine and rides nice with a nice positive feel to the bike and its controls , just need cable slack taking out of the brakes

Srsly, if you see a bike with a gate sized frame that's a bit special, do let me know. No disrespect to that one, but it's a bit like yer run of the mill Puch or Peugot. Not unlike the one I offloaded on you not long ago in fact! Eroica 2016 maybe.
