1984 Motobecane Moto-Max

Stunning design.

I stumbled upon this bike on ebay and had to have it.  I'm a sucker for the low profile design, but the unique sleeved toptube as well as the internal cable routing made it impossible to forget.  I had no idea that it was such a stone cold survivor.  Every part aside from the tires appears to be original.  I've swapped the original CW-type bars for these Redline V-bars 'cause they make the bike feel snappier.  I still have the original bars though.  The geometry is pretty slack, but the cool factor more than makes up for it!
