I recently picked up a couple of these at auction:


Very nicely made, machine embroidered with silk thread directly onto white linen backing. The word MOTOBECANE is actually a deeper blue than my scan indicates. Actual size is around 4 x 6 inches (102 x 152 mm.)

I plan to attach them to handlebar or saddle bags. The image would seem to be early to mid 1970s.

I have never seen similar Motobecane patches. Does anyone know when these were made?

Thanks! Bob Hanson, Albuquerque, NM, USA
