This pic is from the 1966 Cannes film festival (That's Raquel Welch on the back).
By then the French CRS police had moved to BMW, but I suppose it is possible that some of the old Ratiers were kept for side functions.

The cam cover does look similar:

I know girls are maturing earlier these days, but, I'd bet she's older than that.

1915


1916




1915 was a watershed year. No more bicycle pedals to start.
