Hi I have just picked up a 1973 velosolex assisted cycle and was just wondering if anyone else on the site has one? I'll get some pics up soon :D

That looks like a Puck in the background, early 70's?

There was a guy at Beaulieu, about 5 years ago, selling brand new ones in boxes. If I remember correctly they were still being made somewhere in Asia, can't recall exactly where (probably one of the French dependants)

Probably Vietnam or Laos, they were great though, with the engine at the front they were a very stable machine.
