Aloha Solex  by patjila

For decades, Solex, the “bicycle that runs by itself” has been known by entire generations. And you know what? This legendary Solex brand and bike are risen from the ashes like a Phoenix!

Conceived during the Second World War by Marcel Menneson and Maurice Goddard, the Solex bikes were launched on the market in 1946.

De renewed Solex is launced. A partnership between Solex and Pininfarina, one of the greatest designers in the automotive industry, has created an ultra-contemporary line, but is still pays tribute to the unforgettable silhouette of the legendary Solex.

Long live the Solex, hurray :)

Equipment: Eyes, hands, mind, soul, Canon Eos 30D
