Very nice Motobecane Grand Record from '72 or '73 with lots of campy. Black and red paint are in excellent condition, not dings or dents in the frame. Size is 58cm center to top, with a 56cm top tube. Unfortunately, just a tad small for me. Nice Reynolds 531 frame (too bad we just missed 5/31 day).

Deraileurs are campagnolo nuovo record with shimano friction bar end shifters. Crankset is a neat TA. Weinmann centerpulls and brake levers. The photos show a newer shimano 600/mavic wheelset (I wanted to test if 700c fit well, they do) but I would swap these out for the original wheelset. I suppose the mavic/600s could be added for a price. The 33mm Soma tires have lots of room to spare, could easily clear 35mm, but 38 might be a stretch. I was hoping this could be my poor man's Malocchio, but just not quite right on the sizing. The original Brooks is in great shape. 3T bars and stem. Burrito bag is not included.
