Motobecane SPR50

OK, so it's a while since I did anything on Mabel, her stubborn refusal to run without choke has caused more problems than enough. The latest is a stiff when left for a while engine which makes me wonder if there's a bearing that's not playing.

So, the engine's comming out (again!) and all bearings will be checked.

Then we'll try again.

After striping, rebuilding and trying again I finally gave in.

A Dellorto carburetor I had for my M40 was fitted and....

..problem solved.

A trip for an MOT, some paperwork and Mabel's now road worthy..

Oh yes, this is how she looks now..
