Re: velosolex

lots of solex in StL :)

Re: velosolex

Steve is a good guy, but his Solex parts are mostly from China, since he is/was a dealer for the Chinese Solex copy bikes (Black-n-roll, Velosolex S 4800). They are usually too busy or disinterested to chat on the phone.

No problems with VeloCruz, but you will not be able to contact them by phone...he's on the road all the time....you must order from their webshop. Their parts are mostly from Hungary, where the original Velosolex machinery is located.

Re: velosolex

ok so is the solex parts from china any good like the piston and piston rod

Re: velosolex

charley owens 3rd /

ok thanks for the info

Re: velosolex

They are definitely not as good as the original French parts. The pistons are generally not made from the correct material, and are generally not made to the correct specs. Same with the rods, which will have Chinese bearings in them.

Re: velosolex

i hate solex
