Are you sure it doesn't say AV50?

There have been so many types of mobylettes that the real experts on it
still come across types they haven't seen befor on a yearly basis.
But my first guess would be a "moby club" or something like it. I realy
could use a picture.

Not only the US models. Almost every country has it's own models and
same models named different and vice versa. For instance the AV42 was
called EEG10 here and looked slightly different (headlight). Furthermore
there have been models produced by motobecane in france and Kaptein in
the Netherlands. Both exported mobylettes to elsewhere.
