This is a vintage Solex 1700 bicycle with a motorised roller that propels the bicycle. We were told from the previous owners that it was in use up until two years ago but we cannot confirm if it runs or not at this moment in time. Tyres are shot from standing and will for sure need replacing, but brakes seem functional and wheel turn freely.
Markings: Solex 1700. As per images
Sourced: in Normandy, France
Age: circa 1959-61
Condition: As per pictures. Sold as a non-working project needing refurbishment. Seemingly original parts throughout including pannier holders.
Shipping will require dismantling to some significant degree (especially overseas) and possibly shipping in two packages. As a result some technical skills will be required to assemble and fine tune. Shipping will be expensive and the price confirmed if required. An approximate price has has been entered. It could be less than this depending upon the amount of dismantling you want me to do and your location! Collection is of course very welcome. Postage to the UK can be drastically reduced if you are not in too much of a hurry. Please contact me for a quote for shipping to other countries.
In summary: A nice project for the technically minded. We were assured it would not be too much of a job to get it running but doubtless will require servicing and maintenance throughout.
