This is my 1980's Motobecane. Built with Columbus SL tubing. I was given the frame and fork a couple of years ago, nothing is original. I have since sandblasted the frame, fitted horizontal drop-outs and experimented a little with leaf gold. Since I donęt have a rear brake I have connected the right brakelever to the bell instead.

Interesting components are as follows:
TA Pro5Vis cranks
Campagnolo Cd'A pedals
Honjo fenders
Universal CX front brake
Shimano 105 brake levers
Guidons Philippe Randonneur bars
Shimano Dura Ace french headset
CLB seatpost
Brooks B17 CS saddle
Formula hubs laced with Sapim race to golden FIR rims

Thanks to Veloform and Komet Club Rouleur for inspiration and help.

from Sweden with love Jonatan
