Description

Established in 1923 Motobécane was one of the most famous French manufacturers of bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles, and other small vehicles. "Motobécane" is a compound of "moto", slang for motorcycle; "bécane" is slang for "bike."
They became more known to an international public by their sponsoring of professional teams and winning the Tour de France with their typical orange and later blue machines. But they also tried to introduce innovative frame designs - just like they did with the Motobecane Profil 3.

The Motobecane Profil was an icon of the 1980s aerodynamic bicycle boom. Tested in Motobecane's wind tunnel, the bicycle was designed for a low wind resistance and an efficient air penetration at high speeds.
This was managed by using oval shaped Aero 2040 steel tubes which were internally soldered. Profil 3 was the last evolution with some improvements of which the most significant is the elegant and also aero shaped front fork. To hone the aerodynamics Shimano 600 groupset was installed and it even includes the original pedals with extra large bearing, internally clamped Ax stem and even the matching aerodynamic water bottle!
This exemplar is painted in the original deep blue colour and is furthermore in excellent condition since the bike was ridden just briefly.
