<< I recently acquired a very clean Motobecane Grand Jubile' which is missing it's crankset and derailleurs, I am guessing it's age to be around 1974 or '75. I was told that the original derailleurs were Huret Jubile' and that the crankset was Stronglight.

My question is: Does anyone have a catalog or spec sheet that tells which Stronglight cranks this should have had? I believe the choice is probably either a model 49 or 93? I have also seen several variations of the model 49 cranks.

The bottom bracket is a Stronglight 118mm and apears to be all original, the bike overall looks like it was barely used at all, and has near perfect paint, a champaign silver with bright red trim, and it's just my size.>>

Joe,

These were usually fitted with Stronglight 49D cranksets (52x42), although I have seen an original '75 fitted with a TA Three Arm crankset. Yes, Huret Jubile Derailleurs and shifters. Motobecane began fitting Japanese components during the '76 model year IIRC.
