Scott,

There are many differences : headlight ( bigger ) and therefore another frontfork, speedometer, taillight + bracket, longer fenders, no combined rear brake ( hand-foot ) no side reflectors on the frontfork, airfilter, fueltank emblem ( monkey  instead of minitrail ).....

The bigger headlight looks better than my z50a mini trail, is the horn the same as the z50m.
You have quite a few bikes do you restore them as a business or are they all personal bikes.

Scott,

The horn is similar to the z50m horn, but the French z50m can have a different model ( see picture).
The bikes are our own personal bikes , but we also do restaurations a a part of our business.

Luc, beautiful job on the French m.
I really like the looks of the large head light, is the seat original, the tartan looks perfectly aged.

The seat is original and indeed perfectly aged.

Luc,
the French m looks great, all your pics make me want to get going on mine again.
One more month and my shop should be up and running.
Your next project is another z100? do you do all the work yourself, paint, welding, fabrication etc.

Scott,

We do all the work ourself. Welding, sandblasting, ultrasone cleaning, fabrication and painting.

You should get going on your M asap.

The next project is a cz100, after we finish the Belgian z50a and our candy ruby red Belgian st 50 k3

Luc,
How come Europe got all the cool bikes, your still getting better bikes and cars.
Not right.
I should be getting back to the m in a few months, have to move all my equipment to my shop before anything will begin.
