1975 Velosolex 5000 Export Model

For ebay auction: PLEASE CLICK HERE


By 1975, Velosolex had started varying the design of its famous cyclemotor. I suppose it must have presented a problem to the company, as the original 30 year-old style was a French icon and new models therefore required similar old-fashioned looks; but everywhere else seventies vehicles had adopted a completely new look. The 5000 seemed to fulfill both sets of criteria.


This one is in good unrestored condition. The previous owner told me he had it running. But I’ve done nothing with it. So it is sold for restoration in untested condition.
