Brand Information(click to expand)
One of the giants of French bicycle production, Motobécane produced a full line of bicycles from the sought after Team Champions and Le Champions down to the Hi-Ten (gas pipe) built base models. It should be noted that many Motobécanes were built with Swiss threaded bottom brackets instead of the typical French threading.
Motobécane was the first French maker to start using Japanese parts.
