I assume by beauty you're referring to the bike...I hope so, anyway, 'cause it rocks!

A Simca? That's a blast from the past, and you'd definitely look good in that wearing a burnt orange cashmere sweater

That was my first car when I was 18. The girls who wouldn't run away or laugh at, were laid down on the incredibly comfortable reclining seats double bed.
Lotsa fun in the fields.
Unfortunately, that SWM wasn't my first bike.

I mean the bike and the car, always liked those small French rear engined cars, be it Simca, Matra, Renualt. ah a Dauphine Gordini would be nice for the Mila Magelia, certainly turn a few heads, in incedulity!!

Sorry about the spelling!!!

Just one question, how the hell do you get a bike on the roof and tie it down? I know it's a light bike, but still difficult

In the 70s my mate's party piece after we'd ridden at a trial was to ride his OSSA M.A.R. onto the trailer (which was attached to his Renault 14) between my Sprite and my mate's Greeves. On one occasion he got the throttle cable caught on my bike making the bike rev at full throttle and he ended up shooting up the Renaults sloping rear and ending up on the roof of the car. So that's one way of doing it.
