Hi everyone,

Sometime ago I bought in France(my native country) a smallfram in order to restore it.
It's an original 50s first series 4speeds from 1964,(rarely in France because it was necessary to have the license to drive it due of the 4 speeds)
Happy to see the good condition when it was discovered in a barn (Surface rust not important, motor not blocked, complete with 99.9%)

Thanks, Yes for the motor but firstly I think install an original 125pk elestar because I do not think much roll with the 50cc...

Nicely done. At first I was thinking it would look great without painting but it looks great.
