    Steve Ive got at least 15 Buzzing magazines and non look like your photo, most of them are 50 to 70 yr olds thrashing 50's into the ground under the pretence of spirited riding. Wait until you read the classifieds, for sale Norman Slovenly, fitted with cast iron rearsets, 2.5 "tyres 65cc conversion big Bing Carb. Stone age ignition, original rims.

    Yes they are to stop you damaging the petrol tank (right) or the ignition/ flywheel side (left) if it falls over
    the two litre can is your spare petrol ( petroil ) as the bike tank only holds 500cc of fuel

    Yes on a spring bracket, designed that way, you pull the spring clip to release the BP can
    French do have some strange ideas

    The can is a T shaped that bolts onto the wheel spindle

    Well I've had a bit of fun with the quick oily rag and decided that 0.4bhp is not enough for 1 in 4 hills and my 15st. Damn near killed myself with LPA.... So I need to swap this french beast for a geared, slightly more powerful moped of similar age. Shame as this velosolex is great fun
    So I'll put it back on ebay after xmas

    With that extra fuel tank does it have a range to beat a GSA?

    500cc in the bike
    2000cc in the can
    equals .....dunno I've not ridden it as such yet but I guess more than 100miles
    I don't think the GSA needs to worry
