VeloSolexing through Eastern Europe ...

Video from Giant Centipedes' Summer tour:

Grinding through Poland, Germany and Czech on two 1971 French-built VeloSolex 5000 mopeds: 49 ccm; 0,78 hp; 1,2 litres tank capacity.

Giant Centipedes is a reckless Copenhagen-based moped touring gang grinding neighbouring countries in great fumes of two-stroke oil.

Casualties:

Three front tires (with one exploding en route@25km/h), two pistons, one pedal and four gaskets.

Thanks to the Polish people for their enormous hospitality.

Moped touring gang is a fantastic idea.

If the road takes you as south as Macedonia one day (I know, we are not neighboring countries:)), give me a call.

Respect.
