Thanks for the great site Dennis. I’ve resurrected my 1970’s Motobecane Mirage and got it fixed. This bike has basically taken me full circle……….my last bike was a custom Serotta this summer and my fixed Mirage, which was one of my very first “serious” bikes is now my “newest”. These are the specifics:
1970’s 56cm Motobecane Mirage with 2040 Hi-Resiliency Tubing
Sugino RD Crank (48)
Surly Flip flop Hubs (18)
Nitto Technomic Stem
Phil Wood bottom bracket with Swiss cups
Tektro levers
DT Swiss RR1.1 rims
Specialized Armidillo tires 700x28
Original Weinnmann 610/Vainqueur 999 brakes
Original seatpost
Recycled ITM Prima 220 42cm bars
Recycled San Marco ERA saddle
Original pedals
