    Hi, I have recently purchased this motorcycle. Any info regarding its age would be greatly appreciated. Also is this the correct engine for the frame, the front engine plates do not seem to be correct. Thank you.

    The engine mounts certainly look dodgy and I cannot imagine any manufacturer using such a configuration.
    This page shows a Peugeot 125 which appears to be very similar to the machine in question.

    Thank you for your prompt reply, it was very much appreciated.
    I can only assume that many of these French bikes shared the same parts through different manufacturers as the cycle parts on my bike are identical to the ones used on the Peugeot bikes, such as the rear light, rack and mud guards etc.
    Do you know of a data base or an owners club / organisation that would be able to help me date it so I can register it in the UK.
    Many thanks again,
    Andrew
