About Motobecane Moped
If you were a young man in rural France in the 1960s and you were going to visit your new girlfriend, you would probably have traveled there on a Motobecane moped with a baguette, a bottle of wine, and a bouquet of flowers in the basket. Many French teenagers, who were allowed to ride at the age of 14, rode the mopeds, nicknamed "le bleu" due to a great number of the initial release being blue in color. That sort of European romantic nostalgia has given this French brand of mopeds a place in many moped rider's hearts. The company Motobecane was founded in 1923 and manufactured high-quality bicycles, motorcycles, and mopeds, though the product the company is most famous for is the Mobylette moped. It was first produced in 1949, with millions sold over the next few decades. The range included 40s, which were economical, and the 50 series, which was more refined and is particularly coveted by moped riders. The little French moped has experienced a recent surge in popularity due to appearing in the film "Amelie." Get your own Motobecane moped or parts for it within the large inventory on eBay.
