    I've heard some of the frames are Fuji, but as who assembles them I don't know.

    The Motobecane frame is made by Kinesis. --> Welcome to Kinesis Website
    There's a Kinesis sticker right on the frame of a Motobecane. I believe it's a Taiwanese company and the frames are made in China. I've also heard it's welded in Taiwan.

    According to many sources on the web, Fuji does not make their own frames but also has them welded there in the same factory as the Motobecane. At least that is what I have found so far.

    If the frame geometry works for you and the components it's built with are to your standards then you should be good to go. Check out the Kinesis site. They seem to know what they are doing.

    Kinesis builds frames for lots of "manufacturers".
