I love Velosolexes. They’re the epitome of French motoring. Of course, over there you don’t need a license, helmet or registration if your machine is under 50cc. No wonder so many Brits have moved there!

I bought this one from a chap who’d restored it mechanically over a year ago. It’s in very good unrestored cosmetic condition, which is just how I like them. The French have a wonderful term for it – ‘in its own juice.’

However, a good friend in France subsequently gave me a similar one as a present and, as that one obviously has sentimental value – and I’m selling all my duplicates – I now have to auction the 660 even though I like it.

I’ve never fired it up. And due to the volume of vehicles I’m putting into this grand sale I’ve not had time to put them all through the workshop. So this one must be sold as ‘for restoration.’ But I hope it will start for its new owner after only minimal attention.
