je laisse la main René-Gillet 750, chais plus le modèle exact... Non... C'est pas une René-Gillet. Mais une moto française connue... Laquelle? Alzheimer? Si ça peut t'aider, la police française a été équipée de: Dresch, Gnome et Rhône et Condor (Suisse)... Pour ne citer que les marques (de langue) françaises. Ha il faisait des motos aussi celui-là ? Gnome et Rhône? Ou BMW? Je recherche... Ratier? T'avais pas dis français... It is deffo no BMW. I also think it is a Gnome et Rhone. V 2... De chez Gnome et Rhone: ... à moins d'infos complémentaires... Une autre photo complémentaire, issue ele aussi du site Gnome et Rhône: Sorry jp, many details dosen't match to Gnome et Rhone. It's BMW R12 (1935-41 ex.german militaly) Link to "" After The W.W.II, number of goverment vehicles were insufficient in France. And they found "C.M.R." (Centre de Montage et de Réparation) in 1947. C.M.R. repaired and supplied many wartime vehicles for the goverment. Gendermerie recieved many ex.German militaly BMW (R12, R71, R75 etc...) C.M.R. changed to C.E.M.E.C. later, and began to supply Cemec. Comme quoi j'avais un doute, hier... Merci Jun! comme toujours!

Thanks jp (I find some videotape, laser-videodisk & broken LD player when large arrangement of a warehouse. and now try to repair the player, may be uproad some movie & TV-movie later )
