24th international meeting of Motobécane Club de France
« on: February 05, 2019, 10:50:53 AM »
Hello, I'm Leenane from the MCF club and i live in Brittany, near the Golfe du Morbihan and we hope to see some of our british friends in june during our international gathering.

The MCF (Motobécane Club de France)

Created on January 15, 1997 by a handful of collectors, lovers of the brand and eager to join together in association, the Motobécane Club de France today has about 1000 members spread over all the French departments, including Guyana and Reunion, in neighboring countries and even in Australia, Canada. It represents a fleet of about 5000 Motobecane / Motoconfort, plus 2000 machines of other brands for a total of 7000 machines and became in 2007 the largest French club of lovers of 2 old wheels.
The annual meeting of the Motobécane Club de France 2019 will take place on 22 and 23 June 2019 in Brittany, Pluvigner, in the department of Morbihan. It is organized by the Autos, Motos d'Epoque - Club Atlantique (AMECA) at the Espace Saint Michel in the city center, near the town hall.
This space will be the place of grouping, exhibition, meals and animations. Departures and arrivals of 2 circuits will be on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
Owners of old "classics" of other brands are also welcome to join us if they wish.

Sincerely and wishing your interest in this rendezvous of "vintage &classic" two wheels,

OK, Funny! I like it, but I'm Breton and I come here to talk about our passion: the bike.  :D
Politics does not interest me. When I go to see my friends in the UK or Ireland, we discuss beautiful mechanical classics and music ... :) 8)

As a Breton you are almost English, or Cornish if you are particular. ;)

I used to be a member of the Tobec club when I had a Z22c and a Z2, nice little bikes,now both back in France, and to show how confused I am my family name is Norman/Breton origin.

I have not been back to france since 2007, you mayfind it hard to believe but since 1980s it has become too much of a pain in the bum to travel to France, so many ifs buts and petty regulations at the Ports.

I am also a veteran of the Tour de France des Motos annciennes.

Used to do the Rallye Internationale at Luc sur Mer every year until health reasons stopped me for a couple of years. Always enjoyed it though.
Are all those Motobecanes etc painted dark brown and beige though? Always seems so.

Congratulations on your past commitments! and I wish you good health for all these years to come.
It is true that many Motobecane were black was a time then brown (light and dark). In the 50s and 60s, it was more like "Putty". But in the 20s and 30s there were beautiful shimmering colors embellished with chrome for the 250, 350 and 500 tumbled. Hoping to have answered your questions, I will make photos on June 22 and 23 and post them for you on this site. Best regards

I always thought the two tone brown was very smart,my z22c had a chrome tank to add to its looks.

Motobecane fourstrokes were good little bikes, even the little 125cc sidevalves did sterling work.

It is true that the two-tone brown is class, mine is from 1958 and is putty color with chrome tank. It has less than 30,000 km of origin. It was also possible to choose its color provided you put the price and can wait time to redo the appropriate paint 8)

Hello, some information of the preparation of the meeting:
- already more than 100 registered mopeds and motorcycles
- the friendly arrival of Henk van Kessel, world champion 1974 on Kreidler 50cc (25 podiums in his racing career). He will travel the 900 km from the Netherlands by moped !!! congratulations to the champion and a good example of investment ..... (to be continued)

Nicely Art Deco.
I struggled to find a French bike over 250 when I was looking about ten years ago, but that looks nice.
I was told they didn't like selling their larger classic stock abroad as there weren't that many left.

Normally it is the law of supply and demand that works. Cars and motorcycles often go abroad, as enthusiasts from all over the world buy in Britain or elsewhere. Good luck with your research .
