One Cylinder, Two Stroke

Yesterday to my big surprise I saw an old Velosolex engine mounted on a tricycle's front wheel in Beijing. The lady who brought it from the suburbs to the city center for repair said that the young man sitting on the floor between his tools was one of the few left who can still handle repairs like that. Just a few weeks ago, I published a blogpost in memory Velosolex, when I bought my electric bicycle. I thought though the orgininal Volosolex engine must have disappeared. But it has not.
