This here is one solid commuter bike. Used it every day for two years while going to school in TX. Never let me down. It is a vintage (1970s) Motobecane Super Mirage. 21 speed. I have upgraded/ serviced almost every part on this bike over the years. New cables and housings, serviced hubs and bearings, and newer rims. Brand new tires, tubes, handlebar tape, and saddle. Beautiful two-tone blue paint has a lot of metallic in it and just radiates in the sunshine.

This is not a 'perfect' bike by any means but it is ready to put in some hard work. Frame has a few chips and scratches as expected. Front fork is slightly tweaked, and I thought about replacing it (aftermarket chrome forks are easy and fairly cheap to find on eBay) but I did not want to lose the painted portion on the forks and chose to just live with it. Selling because I have to many bikes, am not commuting to school anymore, and it also never fit me that great. I am ~5'8" and it's a little big for me. I am guessing it's about a 56 or 58 size frame.
