This book is still solde in french by the editor : Charles Massin édition, 16 rue de l'Amiral Mouchez 75014 Paris - Phone : 01 45 65 48 48 - and is solde 145 F plus the transportation fees.
  • The book of Jean GOYARD "Le temps des mobs", Maxéville, EPA édition, 1995, 187 pages, proposes only a little part on the Solex.

You can also find technical documents on the Solex :

  • "Catalogue des pièces de rechange, Solex 3800", qui propose les shémas éclatés de l'ensemble du Solex.
  • "Vélosolex, guide de réglage et de démontage du moteur", qui propose une série de diagnostiques et les réparations relative à ces pannes.

You will find these documents following this link in the french part of the site.

You should know that these documents are often available at your retailer, because they should have one.
