'ALLO 'ALLO


French people i need your help. I have a little 1950s Peugeot motorcycle that i have finally got round to doing something with. After much Googling i am thinking it is a 175cc type 57, around 1954/55/56. The frame number is 966557. The bore size appears to be 60mm and it has twin exhaust ports. Googling in English doesn't get me very far though and i am not sufficiently conversant in French to get past asking for beer. I have searched Ebay.fr but cannot find anyone selling new engine parts. Until i strip the motor i don't know what parts i need but if someone can give me the details of anywhere in France that specialises in Vintage Peugeots that would be a good start.
 The only cycle parts i need are a rear brake lever and a pair of footrests and brackets.
 You can mail me on tri650@live.co.uk. Your reward will be eternal gratitude, love and stickers.

If you need help in writing an email, just send me the email in english and I'll translate it (for a blue chopper t-shirt size M :-). It will be far from correct french, but understandable for most...

Pete, if you download google chrome, it's free you should get a translate option that drops down when you hit a foreign site, come s in handy.
