How to determine year of manufacture of a Velosolex Solex bike

How to determine the model of a Velosolex Solex bike




The 14-3-1966 or 25-10-1962 date that you may see cast into the crankcase is the date of approval of the Cyclomoteur 3800 and Cyclomoteur 2200 engine respectively, not the dates of manufacture. 

The Cyclomoteur 2200 engine was used on both the S 2200 and the S 3300.

The Cyclomoteur 3800 engine was used on the S 3800, the 4600, the 5000, and the Micron.

The majority of the online serial number charts do not pertain to the exported Velosolex Solex bikes, like those sold in the USA, Canada, Germany, Denmark, etc.

* If you would like to know the model and year of manufacture of your Velosolex / Solex, just send me a photo of your Velosolex /Solex, along with the engine serial number, (and the frame serial number if there is one).

e-mail: Velosolex3800@aol.com

Please watch this video to help locate the serial numbers:
