Hi there,

I have been trying to join for the past couple of days but after I fill in the membeship details and submit, I jusy get a message saying "timed out, please try again".

Can someone help?

Regards, Chris

Hi Chris.

Sorry to hear about your problems with trying to join. I fear the fault is with our website host and there is nothing I can do about it. However, if you refresh the page, this usually works - if not first time, then second or third. This has been an ongoing problem in the past and we thought 'Webs' had cured it. Looks like I'll have to complain yet again to them. :(

Regards,

Paul G.


P.S. You are not alone, the page just timed me out trying to send this to you!

Hi there. We are a bunch of 6 guys from Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Switzerland going on a Solex tour from Zurich to Paris starting this Saturday. We hope we will arrive in Paris in 10 days without any glitches. It would make us happy if you accompanied us on our adventure on our blog.

Many greetings

Greetings from the Motor City. Can't wait to share what I know and learn something new. Long time admirer of the Solex. Have wanted one since I first was issued a moped license at 15 and saw a pair that a local elderly couple brought to a local festival. Spent more than half my life trying to track down an example that spoke to me in the same ways the pristine mid 70s pair did at that that show. One failed attempt with a Hungary bike that ended up being parted out brought me some knowledge. Now I have a mostly restored 1966 that I'm getting ready for the same yearly show this weekend where I first saw a Velosolex. Quite a few NOS parts going into the finishing this week. Will take a pic once I get the bags on her and check over all the bolts. 


Looking forward to seeing some photos of your Solex! You can post them in the Photo Gallery. Please note that the 14-3-1966 date that is cast into the crankcase is the date of approval of the Cyclomoteur 3800 engine,a nd not the date of manufacture. I can determine the year of manufcature for you if you provide the seven-digit engine serial number that is stamped into the top rear of the cranckase.
