Comments:

Appears to be a completely original Motobecane Team Champion of the early 1980s.  It differs from the Motobecane – La Redoute Team replica bicycles in not having a chrome plated rear triangle and in not having Simplex SLJ derailleurs.  The frame, however, appears to be fundamentally the same.
