You know that thing about waiting hours for a number 10 bus then 3 turn up together, it was a little like that with the Solex. Having had the iconic nature of the machine pointed out to me, all I saw for the next few days were Solex and you wouldn't believe the number of emails I received from people who have fond memories of the beast. Of course, before the scooter became popular, the solex was the mode of transport of choice of non drivers and adolescents.
I've been having a look at the various websites and discovered that the Solex will do an amazing 214 miles to the gallon which, if the price of petrol goes up again makes it a very interesting proposition. Anyway I'll give you the link to the American site and the British one.
It's amazing what you learn taking photos..
