Doesn't look like the same engine.

Right side (sitting on it) has a enclosed chain casing going forward to the generator (?). I've looked and could not find anything with the same engine configuration.

Pretty obscure, whatever it is...

Sure?

Looks pretty similar to me.

RE: Back of the shed
Sorry Muffs, not similar at all.

It is a Motobecane model H5S. They also traded under the name of Motoconfort so a partial point to you.

Made in 1930, 500cc side valve (flathead) 4 stroke single. 3 speed gearbox with hand change, foot clutch and a twist grip in each hand make it an interesting thing to ride. The left hand twist grip is for the ignition timing.

Onlinebiker, you are right it is the generator in front of the cylinder but it is driven by a vee belt, not a chain.

I am going off for a weeks holiday so I will post another mystery object from the back of the shed when I return.

cheers
Steve

RE: Back of the shed
This has the making of a great thread. Put up a photo of a mystery item you own Yes
