Here is the story the Guy who bought it rode it to work once, fell off small scuff mark on saddle never rode it again put it in his spare room where it has been ever since, he was moving house, gave it to his nephew who did not like it and is now trying to sell it he wants to put it on EBay as people have told him he will get a lot of money for it, and I am trying to buy it off him using all my persuade powers I have never seen a bike in such original condition it's out of the box new apart from the scuff I may end up paying more than I should it looks awesome in real life.

£150 - £200 in used £10 notes should make him happy - at least an X-Box 360

The newer 1980s headbadge, 3 coloured versus the big red "M". Very nice. Always a winner Motobecane and an '80s bike should never leave you looking for a Swiss or French sized spindle if you ever have bottom bracket problems. :wink: I like those Hutchinson grips too.
