Hello everyone. Sadly, I’m selling this beautiful surgical instrument of a bike which is a little too big for me. It’s a Motobecane Team Track, hardly used at all and stored indoors. Comes with the original factory stickers still on the frame. The original owner has made some upgrades – bullhorns, brakes/calipers, saddle/seatpost, IEA cog and then ridden it for a grand total of around 100 miles before deciding it was too hilly and he was reverting back to a geared bike.
I have then ridden it an additional whopping 150 miles (in dry summer conditions) and realised it’s a little too big and frankly a bit too nice for me. I’ve now gone back to a steel beater bike with cheaper components.
As you can see from the photos, the bike is a garage queen and as such everything is in a 9/10 condition. The paint has only got a couple of tiniest chips pictured and a hardly visible ding to the top tube as seen in one photo, from when I knocked it over inside.
It’s super responsive and light and I think it should belong to someone who will ride it more frequently than I do.
Top tube size is 58cm. Here is the geometry of the bike:

The RRP of the bike without the upgrades was $1500 (https://www.motobecane.com/track/) + shipping fees + 20% VAT for imports.
A little unsure how to price it bearing in mind it’s almost brand new and the upgrades add up to quite a bit.
I'm currently asking for £830.
Collection much preferred from London N7 although I’m open to discussing shipping options at the buyer’s expense.
