This 1980s Betty is a typical 1970s French ladies bike, very similar to the production of Peogeot or Motobecane of the era. It has been made for a rather small shop in Torpes, eastern France. The frame has "mixte" geometry with two parallel top tubes, making it stable yet comfortable at the same time. 
As for the parts we find the typical French combination of Simplex, Mafac, Solida, Normandy and Rigida. On the practical side it offers stable mudguards, rear rack and dynamo powered lights.

Checked in our workshop, this bike is ready to roll.

Condition Used
The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paint and decals are original. All parts have been thoroughly checked and are working fine.
