dear sir,
Thank you very much for your reply
I enclose an attachment with the pictures and description and I look forward to receiving some feed-back

The first is a French bike manufactured by a firm called “CHITI” using a French engine “TRAIN”, final transmission is by belt it is in unrestored condition and as far as I can see 100% complete. I will be grateful if you will tell me whether you are able to give me a valuation on these very old machines if not please give me an idea of where can I get some advice

kind regards
Vincent Maffei
