Running Order

An attractive model, the VeloVap was manufactured between 1959 and 1961 and competed with the Velosolex in France.

VAP already had an excellent reputation, and was the third-largest French cyclemotor manufcturer.

They had been making cycle-attachments engines since the 1940’s and supplied many different manufacturers with moped engines.

The VeloVap was far superior to the Velosolex, but it was twice the price.

In fact, it was only because the Velovap had a clutch that the Velosolex, from the 1700 model onwards, started to feature one.

This one is still in original cosmetic condition, starts easily, and is in good running order.

My friend Alain found it for me at a French autojumble.

He’s ridden it around his garden, and recently delivered it to me in Brighton.

The Velovap has a more powerful engine than a Solex.

It’s less delicate than the Solex, but also heavier.

VAP engines were always known for their power – their first adverts for attachment engines made the most

of the fact that they did not require pedalling uphill.

***********

VEHICLE CONDITION: Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts

– but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.

Two-strokes invariably need basic servicing before starting them, if they’ve been left to stand for more than 3 weeks or so.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
