Seller's Note

1959 VELO SOLEX 1700 'Swan Neck'

VELO SOLEX - 1700 - 1959 This is a 1959 French built 1700 Velo Solex 45cc correctly registered in 2001 by me with a current V5 as a Historic machine so Road Tax is free and does not require a MOT although it passed every year when required. The machine is in ‘as found’ condition but has obviously been cleaned and serviced and used on NACC runs since 2001 and local shows where a lot of attention is generated, even among enthusiasts who are more used to ‘clip on motors’. The Velo Solex was only sold as a complete machine. The wheels have been sprayed black at some time I suspect to cover pitting of the chrome and the handle bars chrome is also poor. Mechanically the machine is good, easy starting without too much pedaling and the brakes work OK. It is a very relaxed and pleasant machine to ride with just the one lever controlling decompression and speed- 20 mph. I have a insurance doc for the machine dated 18/04/1966 issued in Bagnoles de L’Orne which was in the puncture repair tin clipped to the rear of the carrier. The tag on the stem of the handlebars is probably the dealer who supplied it new in Paris in the late 1950,s Obviously the Castrol reserve fuel can is a replacement for the original larger Solexine can which ’disapeared’ at a show. The bars around the engine in pic ? are original but I disliked and never fitted them but are included in the sale as are some pics, Show descriptions and reprints of period Service Manuals for Velo Solex dated 1954 from Practical Motori...
