    Motobecane Mixte - help identifying model and/or year?

    I just purchased a Motobecane Mixte on craigslist, and knowing next to nothing about bikes I've had a hard time figuring out the details on this bike. Any leads or ideas? Photos below:



    Thanks!

    I'm guessing it's an early 70's mid-range (maybe Nomad). The head badge shape is the pre-1974'ish shield. Around '74 they went to a much nicer, round head badge. Mid-range because the front fork is chromed. It looks very much like my wife's Grand Jubilee Mixte, but her bike (and my diamond frame GJ) has black painted panels along with the red tubes.

    Here are photos of a GJ like my wife's:

    Post your question on bikeforums vintage site. And get a photo of the drive side too.
