  • 1977 Solex 3800

I acquired 2 Solex 3800 mopeds in a sales contest (with IBM) in 1977 in Winnipeg, Canada. I used them for one summer and then moved to Vancouver, where they resided in my garage for 24 yrs. I've recently moved to Blenheim, New Zealand and the terrain and traffic are ideal for them. I put air in the tires and gas in the tanks and both of them started instantly (amazing engines).

Unfortunately, during the move both taillights were damaged. I'm looking for replacements. Can anyone help?
