In my experience as a Motobecane dealer and over the years since I have never heard of or seen a Motobecane track model of any sort in the US. It only struck me when you raised the question. Maybe the US importers were simply not interested. Sounds like a custom or special order bike to me.

I know nothing about this make. Can someone ID the production date for me, any background on this frame would be good if possible?
