Motobecane, puis un Citroën 2CV camionette

from our West Texas/Midi correspondent, Don Culbertson:
"I know this is a pickup truck site, [not really--pb] but seeing a Citroën camionette and a Motobecane together harkens back to the days before the family car when workers commuted on two wheels. The golden age of the moped, or  mobilette. Can one use the word golden age and moped in the same sentence? The Citroen was spied  in the village of Meyronne. Appears to  be a working truck, because it was off on the farm working the next day, when I went to to check on it."-DC
