the velosolex 45 was sold from may 1946 to august 1953. as early as 1947, velosolex asked the bp petroleum company to research a special mixture for the velosolex 45cc for maximum optimization of the motor. it should be pointed out that the bp service stations already sold the “energic” and “energol” mixtures for the other motorbikes. solexine was sold in filled and sealed 2 liter yellow cans (the yellow color lasted until 1957), and also at the pump in the bp service stations.

the velosolex was introduced right after world war 2. like the italian lambrettas and vespas in the scooter world, the velosolex set the highest standard in its genre, and remained the market leader for cyclomoteurs throughout its production run. this particular one is a beautiful velosolex 1010, the same type used in mon oncle, which came out in the same year.
