Typical Bike Boom bikes. Stamped dropouts. Steel wheels. Turkey brake levers. Both have Delrin derailleurs, one of which has a broken front derailleur.

In my area, and in that condition, those might bring $25-50 each.

Just picked this bike for $9.99 at a thrift store. It is in my size and will keep it. I plan to completely strip it this winter. The paint is in very good condition and may require minor touch up. For the money, I think it is worth a bit work to restore it. Will post pictures after the Thanksgiving.

...Velosolex was primarily a maker of motorized scooters, IIRC. They did market , for a while, some regular bikes that were imported into the US.

Like all the marques in the bike boom 70's, they marketed a lineup from low to high. There was some girl in the co-op here a couple of months ago who had one of their Reynolds 531 bikes, which were pretty OK. I think she got it at a garage sale.

Velosolex 1978

From what I have seen in the last year, they went for about 125.00 new and are selling for that now. I am interested in one. I am from NJ.
