Rough Translation: I have a 1954 Lion-Rapide with a 250cc JLO engine which I wish to restore. I'd like to find a photo of the Lion-Rapide emblem and an address for someone who will rechrome the handlebars [and something else]. Many thanks.

LION RAPIDE engine without skeleton
I have an old friend who is dealing with collection and reconstruction of old motorcycles. Now he has got an engine block and supposes it must be the block of a LION RAPIDE or LION ROUGE produced in Belgium in period around 1930 but he is not sure. Attached: some photos of the engine. Could you please help us to identify the engine and the skeleton that belonged to the engine originally? The next question is if such a skeleton without engine could be bought anywhere or there is any other way to unify the engine with the proper skeleton.
