1977 Motobecane Track
1977 Motobécane Track Bicycle – fully restored
This rare track bicycle was fully restored by Santucci Cycles to show quality.
The frame was professionally painted with metallic copper pearl and contrast head tube/seat tube in white. The lugs are lined in gold. The decals are from two reputable decal artists who supply much of the classic bicycle community. Every part was meticulously cleaned, scratches were buffed out, and finally polished to a mirror shine.
While I am not certain of the exact build year, the Normandy hubs are stamped 1977. Using stamped components gives a good indication of the fabrication year.
This bicycle was featured at one of the premier bicycle blogs, CycleEXIF
