I've got a 1971 Motobecane Club frame which is now about 1cm shorter than it used to be due to an unplanned merging of the front of the bike with the hood of a car which was in the process of turning; What parts are valuable enough to keep and try to sell?
- The (already-removed) brakes are Weinmann Symetric side-pulls with Kool-Stop salmon pads which are about halfway used-up (but for salmon pads that means probably at least 1/2 years of daily riding)
- The rear lamp is a Soubitez from a similar era ('70s/early '80s) but the front lamp was irreparably damaged
- The chainset is an aluminium "Motobecane"-branded model from the '80s and was bought as NOS only a few months before the crash
- The front derailleur is a Sachs-Huret Jubilee (i.e. is from the early '80s) which was bought as NOS only a few months before the crash
- The rear derailleur is a Huret Allvit which likely came with the bike (i.e. is from 1971) and has signs of heavy use but has no damage
- Although it can't be seen here, the saddle is torn so it's probably worthless
