French Advancer

Post by Interpol2471 » Mon Mar 25, 2019 9:55 pm

For those who read my article some years ago in the club mag or in Real Classic Magazine the mythical Sachs engined bike is at long last resting in my workshop.
I have found the frame builder Mr. Whitlock of Beamish Suzuki fame now to find Colin French to let him know the one and only French is back in circulation Very Happy

Stripped to engine now as compression low from standing 30 years hopefully just a lovely clean and freshen up but before stripping after soaking in oil redex and wd it tried to fire up so really positive.
May need advice from the Sachs chaps soon.

Last saw this in the flesh many years ago when it belonged to a chap who lived next to the Mid-Hants Railway; could it have been Medstead? It was, as I recall, a rather er, distinctive, metallic lime green colour.
