Moto Salon Paris 2012

Post by Brad Jones » Sun Nov 18, 2012 4:54 pm

A fab time was had at the Moto legendé show in Paris on Saturday, meeting up with fellow B50er’s once again.

Lined up outside the Parc Floral venue in the chilly and damp are, from left: Jean Paul Bayer, François Baluteau (B50 nut!!), François’ friend Laurent who is about to write a piece on the B50’s for the French web site http://www.motos-anglaises.com/ (loads of interesting stuff on it) and Maryline Baluteau (François’ wife) who last year took to the race circuit on a B50 for the first time!

Not really Malc, only one 1971 bike that I saw, a restored Triumph TR6C - nice, and also an even nicer X75 (sort of Umberslade), though with a nasty price attatched to it! Actually there was only one BSA on display, a Bantam. Triumphs seem to be more popular than BSA's over here, and 1970's Japanese two-strokes more popular than everything. Much the same with the autojumble.

A French dealer purchased a large amount of P30 spares from BSA in the early '70's, but who knows where these are now??
