Buying a Solex

Can anyone tell me whether a second hand solex needs a carte gris? I understand that it needs to be insured

agree with John - mopeds and scototers (the type you don't need a permis) have to have a carte gris - well mine did 8 years ago

I’m fairly sure that all mopeds now have to have a CG and a registration number. If you find one without either it should be fairly easy to sort it out.

Secondhand Solexes are no different from motorbikes as regards the Carte Grise and need for Insurance. I had two Solexes, and needed a Carte Grise for them as well as Insurance.
