Hi from France
« on: 12.10. 2020 07:31 »
Hello everyone, I have been playing around with bikes for over 50 years now, retired to the wilds of Normandy. I've had various BSAs over the years, including Golden Flash and a Super Rocket.
The latest is an A7/A10 with a tuned T110  engine. I also have a couple of prewar Velocettes and a Pykett AJS to keep it company.

Welcome! Pretty beast indeed.
Which bit of Normandie are you in? Loads of people to play with here if you are so minded!
Cheers,
Bill

G'day Slash.
That's a very well done graft of the two.
I gave you a Union Jack flag as the ip you signed in with said that. Now your ip is France so that's what you've now got.
Cheers

Ha! Might have bloody guessed!
I'm doing all right thanks Ian, touch wood. Bit thin on activities Luc way this year - more has been happening with the Vieux Pistons over my side. But it's all starting to drop off a bit. Winter coming, lurgy lurking, etc
See you before too long at one thing or another I hope - that bike needs to be seen out and about mate!

Going to register it over here but no papers with it, only bill of sale from the auction house. Try and get the quittus fiscale and then try and get certificate from FFVE.
