The "Solex" was a motorized bicycle with the engine on the front wheel.
The advertising on the truck :
" velosolex the bicycle which runs alone"
Velo Solex was a funny invention.

One day everything will run alone when the oil has gone. Excellent image.

I looked it up - it is like what we call mopeds. Fabuous light and detail in your image.

I have heard of them but have never seen one. That would come in handy during the Tour going up the mountains! Nice advertising!

You still see solex drivers here in Holland, dressed in long leather jackets and old fashioned helmets.
