After Many years left alone and unwanted

Solex 3800

VéloSoleX is a moped, or motorised bicycle, usually just referred to as 'Solex', which was originally produced by the French manufacturer Solex, based in Courbevoie near Paris, France. The company manufactured centrifugal radiators, carburetors, and micrometers, before branching into assist motors and bicycles. The moped originally created during World War II and mass-produced between 1946 and 1988 came in various iterations, whilst keeping the same concept of a motor with roller resting on the front wheel of a bicycle.

1966: Model S3800, which is the most common and most sold version of the brand over the years, later a Luxury or 'Luxe' version "S3800 luxe" and "S3800 super luxe" introduce colour to the frame which was always black (including the motor) until then, as well as having large wheels with black wall tires. In 1968, the twist grip appear allowing to reduce throttle at stops

Time to start the rebuild

3 years after its release, the S3800 is available in blue or red version "luxury" and white version "Super luxury", the latter remaining rare. It is thus the first velosolex not to be proposed only in the color black. The fenders of these models are chrome, the tank, the magnetic flywheel cover and the engine lift lever are painted in gray, the whitewall tires.An evolution to note is the appearance of gas grip, gray and no longer yellow, on the S3800. However, the brake levers always remain inverted

Now for the waiting game 

Tires ordered Missing components ordered but now we have to be patience
