Founded in 1923, the French Motobécane company had by the 1970s become the world's largest manufacturer of mopeds and bicycles. The firm built lightweight motorcycles before WW2 and into the early 1960s, before changes to France's licensing laws made such machines unpopular there. This change also brought about the demise of Motobécane's scooter range, leaving only the immensely successful mopeds, the first of which had appeared in 1939. The best known of these is the Mobylette, which was launched in November 1949 and would be produced in countless versions over the years. This Mobylette moped is offered for re-commissioning/restoration and sold strictly as viewed. A Swansea V5C is included which lists engine and frame numbers matcing those on the machine. No reserve.
