Motobécane and the Mobylette — 3 Comments

  1. I have a motorbike that looks like the early Mobylette, but the only name that I have found is Kapitain, or something similar. I am going to check it over.
    I have had it for25 years and rode it 15 years ago. It is now hanging in the garage.I doubt the original tires would hold air.
    Any information would be appreciated.

    • The James Cycle Co Ltd. was a famous bike manufacturer in Leeds, England from 1897 to 1966: they had a 197cc “Captain” model which came out in the early 1950’s that is a bit similar. Try a Google search for “james captain 197cc”.
