Motobécane was one of the biggest bicycle producers in France and existed under this name from 1923 until 1984. Afterwards it became a branch of Yamaha and continued producing bicycles in France under the Name MBK.
In the 1980s MBK brought some nice steel bikes to the market. They sponsored famous professional teams and their design was unmistakeable.
Just like you can see on this MBK Trainer Anglais bicycle.
The rear triangle is slim and elegant with the seatstays flawlessly being connected to the back of the seatlug cluster. The seatpost clamping is hidden in the little angle between seat stays and seat tube. All connections between the tubes are almost seamless. Internal welding was the technique that made unusual constructions like these possible.
The bike is equipped with a reliable setup consisting of Shimano, Weinmann or Maillard parts.
A well made bike from a respected French company.
Used. The bike is in good working condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. All parts have been thoroughly checked and are working fine.
