I am now the new owner of this bike, and its a booty.
All intact exept for the stand.

On the cart grise (log book) its Make Huin Elie type AH the 16th made in 1951

I will take it to the local garage for a couple new tyres-innertubes and ht lead. Then we will if it still works??.

I will let you know any facts we find out about the bike in the future.

ps I am off to england for a week from today

More info on the Huin, I put in Huin Elie Motorcycle into google, then went to Lva moto-forum/la marque elie huin.

The bike I have is the ¨¨grand tourisme¨¨ model.

I am looking for things like handbook, what the missing stand looks like,why is there a foot change and hand change for the gears??

There are more questions than answers at the moment?.

Bonne chance John
