I am in the process of purchasing a Motobecane LeChampion and the seller has raised a concern about the brake bridge. It appears that it has been drilled for a recessed brakeset and in the process material has been removed from the bridge. It appears to me this is not too bad and is probably easily repairable. I would think a tube and some brazing would eliminate any strength problems.I am assuming the under side is similar.
What say you? Thanks.
Look in the folder Motobecane.
