And the original mystery bike is a Praga, made in Prague, of course.

Response to R's comments re B&S and binoculars.

B&S are a precision optics company; they still exist as a subsidiary of Pilkington Glass.  Their primary business was binoculars, telescopes, periscopes and range-finders.  Come 11 November 1918, this business just ceased, so they looked for other things to do.  The proprietary engine business was booming, so they took a crack at it.
