Hello, my name is Carlos
I've got a friend who enjoys restoring motorcycles and he is now working in a RAVAT (BMA) of the year 1928, 100 cubic centimeters. After visiting your web page I saw a reference to the name Ravat but no info available.
I would be very grateful if you could send me any information about that motorcycle (plans, characteristics, photographs etc) so that my friend can restore the motorcycle as close to the original as possible.
I thank your attention in advance and wait for your answer.

P.S: I would also need information about other Internet resources (Web pages, mailinglist, news.....) that can help me to get the information.
yours -- Carlos -- guacamole at mundivia.es
