come on , Im laughing . hands up who thinks of Franch when they think of a Motorcycle ?

DONT let motorcycles upset ya . I think the OP has slinked away . poor buggers probably too scared . at least he admitted he bought the thing .
no one noticed my "Monet Goya" thing , like a painting ....... no

in usa theres an amca judge who reels info on indians fairly regularly , usually hes wrong but hes still an amca judge .

get in contact with monet owners uk or villiers stationary motor group of some sort to narrow things down and cross reference . try find out what it isnt . compare frame castings etc
or compile info and sell bike as is

when the guy said "racing" would that be endurance or ulster ?  yes I am serious ... I know nothing about french bikes , french 2 strokes or french 2 stroke racers
Im just be relieved I didnt buy it . I dont buy anything unless I can see a faint "Brough" on the tank or faded "E . P " under the seat

tell us how you really feel

good to get feed back , not that Im in the auction house for one of these . Im not surprised to read what you saying . I was gonna post in other thread that the BS and coventry had the same engine .
I guessed the only thing BS was the basic chassis .
its unbeleivable that people with lots of dosh go for mc . why ?
a new bench mark pops up and the rich folk flock to buy . look at price on HD knuckleheads for god sake . notice a few japan HD bikes are on ebay now , maybe its worn off now ?
the millionaires might go back to the golf course
