Cool Stuff! Thanks.
What's the French bike with the cast alum tank? Was the frame alum on it also?
Thanks again, RF.

We are a small restoration and custom motorcycle work shop in Asheville North Carolina . We specialize in pre 1965 small displacement European motorcycles with preferably a race history to them. 125cc to 350 cc (with the occasional 500cc single or the occasional 2 stroke) . By appointment only, but we welcome visitors anytime . For 2012 we have been working on the 2 French bikes above , a couple of Royal Enfield continentals 250cc (with the camel hump tanks) , Benelli 250cc , Kreidler 50cc GP racer , 3 BSA B31 racers , 2 BSA B33 ( 1 racer/ 1 plunger) , and Vincent Comet racer/retro custom build) . We are just a small custom shop that has an interest in preserving and or updating historical motorcycles. We are not a chop shop
