Has anybody had any experiences with the the classic French moped - the VeloSolex (or Solex)?

Along with Cits Pugs & Reno's, it has indefinable Frenchness. It's the world's second most popular motor cycle and is still being produced today.


They also attract devoted followers (the 2CV is another example - in fact, dedicated Solex devotees have been known to take the passenger seats out of their 2CVs to transport their VéloSoleXs! Of course they easily fit into the boots of 604s.
