I bought this frame from a garage sale back in '96 for $15. It was a complete bike with old wore out parts, and at that time didnt even know what make or model it was. Ive kept it around all this time cause I think this frame is just too damn cool! So I started researching back in winter '09, and found out what it is. Have definately thrown alot of random parts on this bike over the years, and I wish by now they were all the correct pieces, but theyre not. So for now, here's the build list:

Bars: GT Pro, polished

Stem: GT Pro Elite, Blue ano

Headset: Tioga BearTrap

Grips: Jive Tentacles w/ NOS Jive Nuts

Seatpost: Dyno Drainpipe, polished

S.P.C.: Unknown doublebolt

Chainring: NOS GT Overdrive Lite 44t, blue ano

BB set: Unsealed loose ball 24 tpi

 So if anyone here on the museum can hook me up with some Motobecane decals, or even a set, that would be awesome! Thanks for lookin!
