Oui, André, mais pas seulement.

When looking at the pic and the seeable exhaust, I'm thinking more to a 'vertical twin' than a 'flat twin'. Don't you?

Und, zum Beispiel, look at what is attributed to the French road police in this French 1955 movie, /movie.php?id=143851
One Triumph, one Norton! Reality or necessity of the production, I don't know which, but CEMEC, Ratier or BMW are not the only ones used in the late fifties in French cinema when showing motards de la police (notwithstanding Gnome et Rhône).

Bonsoir Didier, e merci pour la liste: from what is visible Norton après 1957 type SS 500
comes closest, by long and straight manifolds, indeed!
even the whitewall tyres and crash bars would fit
"motards de la police" seems to be the magic word!

Well, André, we'll take it. (I brush aside the problem that we see "apparat" bikers, those of la Garde républicaine, and that maybe these are not usually those on duty on the regular French roads. But they could have been hired for a film to give a good imag of the police, who knows? Even if they only show for five seconds in the dark…)
