    Fly Ti Badge Treatment
    Had to share this with the Moto fam. I can't imagine this invalidates the warranty. It's just lo-profile!

    Oh, you got jokes! I have Shimano XT clipless trail pedals for riding. Now that it's mostly unused during this winter off season, I put these pedals on for the occasional ride around the block to my neighboorhood stores and to feed the for need a quick ride when weather is not too cold or wet. I'm not hardcore enough for "real" cold weather riding. Winter for me is basketball season!


    Thanks!

    I meant no offense... just playful humor. your bike is way better and more expensive than mine... i don't even have clipless yet, because 90% of my riding is biking to work. so i sincerely meant "Sweet ride!"

    Absolutely no offense taken at all. I thought it was a funny remark because, of the entire bike, these particular pedals are probably the "lowest tech" item on it in the photos. I thought you were making fun by pointing out the obvious.

    Thanks again for the compliment.

    Happy trails!

    Love the look of your Ti moto!

    How did you give the brushed look to those two smaller motodecals? Did you use a scotch pad on them?

    I used paint remover to get both the decals and badge paint off. The stuff I used work instantly! I didn't use anything abrasive to "brush" the metal. The badges are madefrom a fairly soft aluminum. Also, in these photos the resolution is set pretty high.Here's the details from that event:

    Wo, brilliant with the Badge. While I wouldn't remove the decals personally, I completely understand if you do it for personal aesthetics than some out of humility.
    You and I and most other Motobecane owners know why.
    Mine is the 2014 model with the latest attempts to make older bikes unupgradable with these new "standards" such as over sized HS etc. I am glad Moto didn't cave into the internal BB hype because many mechanics and general shredders dislike all these ridiculous standards.
    There is something I really like about straight tubing, the simplistic nature is part of what attracts me to bikes beyond the genius of its mechanics but its art.

    I want to remove paint from badge to achieve the look you got. How did you apply paint remover? What kind did you use? Thanks.
