Velosolex Club U.K.

The only club for owners & enthusiasts, dedicated entirely to the Solex   

Welcome to the Forum. Do you have something to say? Want to ask a question about your Solex? Need some technical infomation or a handbook? Have some surplus pieces to sell? Found something interesting on the web and want to share it? Need an instructional 'how to' video to show you how to tackle one of those little jobs? Then this is the place for you!


Many members experience difficulty with uploding pictures to this website. Inserting pictures into a Forum post requires a little more than 'dragging and dropping.' However, at the bottom of this Forum there is a section called 'Website tutorials - how to upload and insert images.' and the three different sub-sections will guide you through the simple process required. (Please note you will need to have Adobe Flash Player installed otherwise the uploading will not work.) Unfortunately, this is just the way 'Webs' - the site hosts - have set things up and it is nothing we have any control over.


Important note! Please read:

At the top of each section is a ‘search’ box. Please use it to see if your question has previously been asked and answered before making a new post.


To help us provide you with the best possible answers to your questions, it is advisable to always quote the engine number of your Solex (usually to be found at the back of the engine). Posting a picture with your question is also very helpful. There are numerous subtle differences between the models and when we know exactly what you have, we can give you the best advice.


Velosolex Club U.K. is a really friendly group of enthusiasts with members around the world and you will find no end of help available should you have a problem with your Solex. However, it also means we are a multi-cultural, multi-racial and a non-political group. Please respect this situation and refrain from making any sort of personal political comments or observations on the Forum. Any such comments made will be removed immediately.
