Harvey, it does indeed resemble a Can-or-Ale, but I stand by my earlier assertion that this frame is definitely a Motobeercan... If I may draw your attention to the following characteristic points... Note the greater amount of foam on the head tube. Additionally, the top tube has a lager diameter than the Can-or-Ale. The chainstays have a more stout appearance and if you examine the tap used on the BB, you'll definitely find French threads.
