Looks that way, GB. Neither of bikes have any oil in them, and the original oldie has the later plunger type oil tank, hence the airgap to the rear guard.

 Nourish knows a lot about these early machines, he has been constructing a homespun rigid end and a trick engine for a good few years, so good luck to his endeavours. I thought the post about frame dimensions was familiar...it originally started in 2013.

It certainly looks good. The lower camera angle and good lighting help the impact. I notice it has the earlier tiny front brake. The smaller tank, with quick release filler cap, might be for the US market. Slightly chunkier tyres help 'butch' it up.

I presume the later model in the second picture has an automatic gearbox.

Compare it to the standard machine - the tank is different and mounted higher - I've got a 250 Fleetstar tank that's the same shape, the tyres, exhaust and the oil tank looks bigger - it looks so much more butch.

Using Google Translation:

Ah, les français et l'anglais, généralement c'est la galère, congratulations pour cette excellente maitrise.
Ah, French and English, usually it's a hassle, congratulations for this excellent mastery.

Et oui, les connaissances 'matérielles' et artisanales sont en déclin, eclipsé par l'informatique. Regardez les jeunes a la sortie de l'école, le nez et le cerveau cloué dans leur téléphone.
And yes, knowledge 'material' and craft are declining, eclipsed by computers. Look at the kids coming out of school, the nose and the brain nailed in their phone.

Interesting to see both lines together; there are words from the same base in both languages. Not surprising really, the French ran this country for 500 years!

 It's a Longstroke A7, Rigid Frame, fitted with a custom leg warming high level exhaust. Single 276 carb, oilfeed to both rocker shafts. That's all from me, the purists can identify the month of manufacture. Can't remember if the front engine steadies were standard from the start or a later owner added mod. Tank also looks a custom job, possibly smaller than standard, later A10 badges (?)

Swarfy.

I captured this pic a few years ago off the net - can anyone tell me what it is or is it a custom build?

you bilingual bugger "e" *good3*

I cheated :O) went to school in France when young(er lol). So kept in contact and dividing year between Norway and France.

Still climbing ladders and battling (but fun actually) fixing up my old house in F, when hopefully under control one day (and health permits) will bring my dismantled A10 there and start working on it. Will be in a very similar situation as Anthony (Antoine? :O)
