Solex 1966 Black 1:18
The first VéloSolex two-wheelers were produced and sold from 1946.
In 1966, the Solex 3800 arrived, the most successful model of moped, which became emblematic with more than 7 million units sold worldwide. In France, its production stopped in 1988 but it will continue in Hungary.
The 3800 model brings important evolutions such as the presence of a clutch and an accelerator handle.
Its new engine, which drives the front wheel by roller, allows it to reach 30km/h.
On the miniature, one finds, of course, the famous red 3800 band on the air filter bonnet but also the reproduction of accessories like the bag on the luggage rack and the small Solexine can.
An icon of motorcycles, it even reached the hearts of stars, such as Brigitte Bardot and Steve McQueen. The latter used it in 1970 during the shooting of the film "Le Mans".
Even today, when the weather is nice, it is not surprising to come across these mopeds that have marked generations and have been part of the landscape of our countryside for decades.
With their simple mechanics, they are the delight of handymen who restore them to give them new lives.
