In Malta there are

Post by Alan H on Sat Jan 08, 2011 10:10 am

a few military museuma as you may imagine. Well, I was over there last year and got some pics of some of the bikes in the museums in Valetta and at the old ex RAF airfield at Ta' Qali Malta Air Museum linky There is a nice pic of a BSA motorbike & sidecar on there under 'other' exhibits, that wasn't on view when I called in.
Anyway here's some of the bikes that were on display - Royal Enfield Flying Flea, BSAs and a couple of Matchless G3Ls (I think).

And Matchys. Nice ain't they. The only thing - they should actually run. I must have a word with them next time I call in!

Managed to contact a chap (with the lovely name of Cedric Popkin) in OZ who runs a 'Flea' club (earlier pics in this thread). with the email & reply as follows;

Saw this in Malta Aviation museum last year, but no more details of it.
After some research, I reckon it may be a 'Flea' but not sure. I may be
going back there this year if you can't get any other details - hopefully
it will be restored and put into some semblance of order soon.

I have better quality pics if they are any good.
