Questions and Answers

In the area below you will find answers to frequently asked questions about Velosolex.

The Velosolex is a bicycle with an auxiliary motor (a predecessor to the e-bike).

From 1946 to 1988 and from 1995 to 2005.

Approx. 1.4 liters, this is enough for about 80 kilometers.

1 dl of mixed oil to 5 liters of petrol (mixing ratio 1:50).
Use gasoline with 95 or 98 octane and a fully synthetic 2-stroke mixed oil.
For models older than the Solex 2200, the gasoline should be mixed with more oil.

Solexine was a specialized mixture for the Velosolex, used to help maximize engine performance. This blend of unleaded petrol, pre-mixed with 6% oil, was marketed by the French oil company BP. It was generally sold in two litre cans. Until 2003, a Solexine dealer existed on Boulevard Saint-Michel in Paris.

Front 6 volts (yellow), rear 14 volts (white).

Highly recommended, this will protect the engine in the event of a fall.

Usually on the right of the steering head on the main frame. For older models it can be found on the frame under the pedal axle (engine number = frame number).
