Banned after tomorrow.

Hopefully the monumental sulk the French will have  soon will stop speculative antique dealers bring this crap back here.

Just looked at the pic again, spoted the huge lock!!!

target for thieves? think not. :D

You guys are cruel, thats a very pretty little motorized bicycle,
and seemingly in excellent condition.
probably be still running along when the petrol has all run out,
and supplies are limited to sunflower oil...

Google is your friend here, an evenings googling will likely show many matches,
its 'just' a matter of pinning down a year. Certainly ran for a number of years,
with not a lot of changes, judging by a quick viewing.

That engine number tag 'fallen off' is of concern. ?
You have receipts and paperwork for it ?

Any moped is easier than a French Motorcycle....

Moped looks great to me, nothing to be done except secure it's year.
I have never found a match for my Terrot on Google ('49 frame/'50 engine) must be a New Year special in 1950.

Easy to get the year for the Peugeot BIMA off Google and other sources.

Someone say Mini's getting banned tomorrow?
But, someone has to keep us on our toes! ;)

What is it about this site that has such a fascination for these obscure frech mopeds? If it wasn 't the fact that they can escape being MOT'd they wouldnt be on the roads here.

There is no point in them,unuseable, impracticable, and worst of all French.

Sorry to disappoint, its the tat being put forward for a ban, not mini me.

Its a lovely day today,especially at 11pm,

Engine number found 363180..on case behind magneto.. she runs well and will fettle up..great for running around the lanes and up to the village pub..not interested in concours crap ..a nice addition to my small stable of a rescued en500a and modern Tiger..

Thats a very nice little bike.....separate mag in a 100cc 2/s must be unique,and the high standard of design and construction surely sets it far above the average French moped ,so beloved of correspondents ...and tinkerers.
