Anyone able to identify the make of this frame? The serial number has a horse head stamped in it. Aftermarket frame maker possibly?

It does sort of look like it, Ferrari symbol/ logo but they never make bikes... think I am correct in saying somewhat.

Maserati did I think in maybe the 1950's, being another interesting car manufacturer, that maybe one wouldn't have thought ever made bikes.

I would go with Magoo1982's post above- being that it may be a Bronco 125..

Bronco being made by Ducati actually (1960-66) and also a US market model- and Ducati used the 'Prancing Horse' symbol also, think also known as "Cavallino Rampante", which I think means 'violent Horse' or something like that!
I'm not an expert but looked it up on Wiki!

These Italians seem to like their horses!

I know they didn't, it was a joke.

^^ Yes no worries, I understand- joking or not- thought you may have been serious- to me does look quite like a prancing horse symbol- as Ferrari used!

As said, one may have thought Ferrari could have even made bikes; like Maserati did which were rare.
If they did bet they would have been glorious!

Well you were probably correct- pretty much! I.e- Jones/ Ammex...Horse Head Emblem etc.

What with Cooper/ Jones/ Islo all being a similar thing and using the bought up Islo parts which as you say were stamped with the Horse head- so yes=- Cooper/ Jones Ammex/ Islo were much of the samething. Good eye and info!

Reckon you nailed it! laughing

I looked at the Ammex frames I have. 2 Horse heads in the serial number. One at each end. Do you have any more then a frame?

I was helping a friend identify an old bike that he found. It is a frame with some other parts, not sure how complete that it is. Again, I appreciate the help on this.
