Notes on the History of the Marque: Motobecane

One of the largest manufacturers of bicycles and motorcycles.
"Moto" is French for motorcycle; "bécane" is French slang or argot for "bike".
After bankruptcy, the company was reconstituted as MBK (pronounced "em-bay-kah.")
The Motobécane trademark has been revived, but the current machinery from the far east have no connection with France aside from the name.

Motobécane
16 rue Lesault
PANTIN (Seine).

Motobecanes using Blackburne engines included
1927 350cc Type G, G2, G3 & Type H 500cc;
1928 Type G, G2 & G3, 1929 350cc Type K, K2, K3 & 500cc Type H & H2; and also probably the 1929 Type L competition machine.

Mopeds include:
Motobecane 40T 1976-78
Motobecane 50V
Detailed information on a number of models may be found at JLB-Créations
