A somewhat dated means of transportation, but it was a very popular in "ride" in Europe the 60's and 70's
About this creation

After doodling with a regular bicycle I deceded to build me something more special.

First i tried if it was possible to get an "engine" placed on a front-fork. Within a short time I had something that looked a bit like a solex.



Al the work give me a first protype of which I was happy about but I felt that it needed more work.



I tried to get to a smaller/thinner front-fork. So I did some work in LDD en came up with this version of it.



With a re-done handlebar, the new front-fork and some other minor changes the second protype was built!



Now it was time to order me some extra parts so my Solex would get its final look.



And now The model is finished!

And I'm quite happy about it...
So here's an "artistic Impression"



Please come back for some extra pictures of the finished models in a few days.
Hopefully the weather gets more sunny so I can take some photo's of the Solex in it natural "urban" surroundings.

A great rendition on a classic bike! I really like the technic design, the frame looks very good. I just fixed an engine from such a moped today, thanks for creating it in lego!
