Look around you, your surrounded it wont get any better.

Just had a lovely last week enjoying the sun and going to London - Which I will talk about tomoro. Today as you know the clocks went forward so I got thinking about last summer and playing around on this Solex - I'll let Wikipedia explain the wonders of them

" The VĂ©losolex has a small 49cc motor mounted above the front wheel. Power is delivered via a small ceramic roller that rotates directly on the front wheel by friction to the tire. "

And as my good friend Peter said - "as they where frequently used by the elderly these bikes where like legal euthanasia tools." Excellent! But that put aside what a fantastic fun piece of design.
